Mumbai Masala Paav/Cheese Masala Paav


"Masala Pav – One of the popular street foods of Mumbai, India. It’s a very easy and quick recipe prepared with Paav/dinner roll and spicy onion, tomato and bell pepper-based masala/gravy. To make it more appetizing I have added cheese to this recipe. Cheese adds more mouth melting texture to the recipe but it’s totally optional. Masala paav can be served as snack or as appetizer also. Give this recipe a try and Enjoy!!!"

For the Masala Paav

  1. To make Masala Paav, cut the paav into half and get them ready to toast. I have applied butter in advance for quick serving.
  2. Next shift the masala to one side of the pan. Melt some butter on the pan and toast paav for a minute. Add butter on top, turn and toast from both side until golden brown.
  3. Next add generous amount of masala on to one half of the paav and sandwich with rest of the half. Also spread some masala on the top, garnish with chopped coriander and cheese.
  4. Serve hot
