Mumbai Weekend Snapshot by Krrish - 2


My favourite dish is Pav Bhaji.
If mummy makes pav bhaji everyday, I'll be very happy.
The pav bhaji at Juhu beach also tastes very good. It is a must try, atleast once. We ate pav bhaji at this stall last weekend, and I watched this uncle make pav bhaji.
It is mouth-watering and appetizing to watch the 'bhaji' which is a mashed mixture of veggies cooked in butter and spices, being made on this huge 'tava' and then the 'pav' fried in spice and butter. Yummy!

Have a fun-filled yummy weekend!

Children playing after school is always a pleasant sight. It's their own way to unwind, destress and relax after school hours, which are sometimes really stressful.
