All cities and towns have their own special street foods but when street food gets really popular it gets served even in top restaurants. Pav Bhaji or Bhaji Pav is one such street food. It has its origins in Mumbai in the mid-1800’s, where it was first prepared to satisfy hungry traders and mill workers at odd hours when other eateries were closed. The traders of Gujarati and Marwari origins both being vegetarians looked for vegetarian fare and the Bhaji, often prepared from leftover vegetables in the beginning in a spicy tomato gravy served along with the white bun which was brought over by the Portuguese to Mumbai was a great combination. It caught on and became a popular snack.

Now Pav Bhaji is sold in the streets of Mumbai, almost all cities of Gujarat and all over India. It is a very popular street food though it is still much more served in the Western part of India, chiefly in Gujarat and Maharastra.
