Notes

1 - You can also make Pav (bread) at home but don't make both bread and vegetables on the same day, you will get tired and the vegetables will not be good. Bring bread from outside and make spicy, delicious vegetables at home.
2 - Pav Bhaji is much more than just breakfast. You can prepare bhaji in advance and serve it immediately when needed.
3 - If your children do not like the taste of any vegetable, then this is a great way to feed vegetables in this way because in Pav Bhaji they will not even notice the taste of anyone vegetable and they will be happy. Will eat food.
