Can we expect any Indian who is not familiar with PAV-BHAJI ?????? No, right !!! A mouth-watering yummy dish of India. The origin of this dish was in Maharastra. Pav in Marathi means Bread and the Bhaji in Marathi means vegetable curry. This is a delicious heavy snack.. with easy recipe.. having tempting look! Go ahead to enjoy the supper.

The Bhaji(Curry) is not specific to one vegetable. Take freedom to add all the healthy vegetables and make the dish healthier. Try to include Potato which makes the Bhaji taste rich... avoiding Potato doesn't spoil the flavor of Bhaji though!

Oats, extremely rich in fiber and has become an ideal food these days. Wanna make an easy and healthy recipe out of it??? Go for this one.. Try to prepare this on a non-stick tawa if possible, as you will not be needing much oil at all to fry the Uthappam.. got fried very nicely just with 2-3 drops of oil both the sides.
