A very interesting Pav Sandwich, which is somewhere mid-way between a regular sandwich and vada pav, but as exciting as both together! Basically, it involves less work than vada pav because you do not need a vada but it is almost as tasty because it uses garlic chutney and assorted masalas including pav bhaji and garam masalas.


The choice of vegetables layered between the pav is also such that you get a balanced texture, with a bit of crunchiness and a bit of juiciness too. Coriander, as always, peps up the whole arrangement, creating a fresh burst of flavours on your palate! Serve the Pav Sandwich immediately on preparation.

In ladi pav sandwich I would add thinly sliced capsicums,mushrooms,and zucchini all slightly sautéed in olive oil. Still other option would be use whole wheat ladi pav which is now easily available.

This is something different. Not a sandwich nor a pav bhaji! A combination of the two. The masala made in this recipe is definitely super. Just loved it to the core. The pav bhaji masala and garam masala adds a perfect to it. I also added some cheese to ti and it tastes amazing..
