Some TIPS :

* Serve paav bhaaji HOT !

* Before serving sprinkle some chopped onion,cilantro and lemon juice on Bhaaji.(I garnished Bhaaji with Carrot,White onion and Cilantro just because to give Indian Independence Day feeling :) )

* I have already posted Paav Bhaji recipe in my blog (Recipe) using store-bought Paav Bhaaji Masala powder. But i feel homemade Masala powder tastes 200% better than store-bought powder.

* Follow the recipe. For best result use  Homemade Paav Bhaaji Masala Powder which i mentioned. :)
