Masala Pav – famous Mumbai Street food. This is a really flavourful snack, very easy to make, ready in a jiffy, can be made in large quantities without any extra effort which makes it ideal for kids birthday parties or kitty parties.
I love this kind of recipes a lot. there are many recipes I have already posted like pineapple salsa canapes, tomato bruschetta, and white sauce sandwich. These recipes not only make a good tea time, after school snack but are also crowd pleasers. and these don’t require much effort to make.
To make this yummy dish more tempting for kids, I have added some grated cheese and Sev in garnishing. In my experience with my kids adding cheese in any form always has a positive effect on kids appetite 😉
