Tawa pulao- Popular Mumbai street food

    I was aware of this popular street food ,but had never attempted at home. First time, I had this at my sister's college canteen and  could not forget the delicious taste of it and thought that re-creating that kind of spicy flavour was not possible at home.When I browsed for the recipe, I was quite surprised to find the secret ingredient used here is pavbhaji masala. It certainly imparts a nice flavour and a typical street food spicy taste to the pulao. Since then , I have made this quite a few times at home and it was liked by one and all.
