Masala Pav

We are entering the Blogging Marathon #47 and for this week I am going to showcase menu card recipes.Valli has given 4 menu cards and we need to choose 3 recipes from a menu card.
After seeing the menus card of chatkazz,I wanted to try some of the Mumbai road side recipes.
As I am a great fan of chaat items I wanted to try some of the recipes.I had masala pav long time back in a chaat corner and I liked it a lot.So I wanted to give a try and referred  some of the videos how its made in road sides.
The masala is made in a griddle then the pav is toasted with the masala with generous amount of butter.Here I made it using the griddle since I made it for two of us for our evening snack.
If you want to make it in large quantities,make the masala in a pan and toast it in a griddle.With no further delay lets move on to the recipe.....................................
