How Pav Bhaji is Made at a Stall at Juhu Chowpatty in Mumbai

vikas.kumar's picture

This video shows how "Pav Bhaji", a very popular street food in India, is made. It has been shot at midnight at one of the food stalls (called "Chandan Laxmi Pav Bhaji and Fast Food") at Juhu Chowpatty Beach (the most famous among places selling Pav Bhaji) in Mumbai, India. Juhu is a suburb in Mumbai famous for its beach, the food stalls, Prithvi Theatre and ISKCon temple and also because it is home to some of the biggest Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai. The video has no actual footage of the beach or the sea since it was dark and was raining heavily...had to save my camera! This is a first in a series of videos on Juhu which is a hot favourite destination with every tourist visiting Mumbai.

yes it is! you can have pav bhaji anywhere in the world but eating it at chowpatty amongst the colourful crowd and bustling music is a different experience altogether. (i shot the first experience with a camcorder)

I really loved the video. It was only while watching the video that I realized how hungry it made me. Can't wait to reach Chowpatty and simply enjoy it. good work. And thanks for the recipe too.

Hey Vikas, Great video!! Great job in anchoring, editing, dubbing and of course the camera work by Ravi. I was having quite different idea of making Pav Bhaji but now I guess I have got the real recipe and tomorrow going to have this in breakfast:) Waiting for some more great videos from you. Best wishes! Alok
vikas.kumar's picture

thanx vikas, when i cook pav bhaji at home but it's taste naver like res. pav bhaji so thanks i 'll cook like this.
vikas.kumar's picture
Thanks Manushi. It's actually very difficult to replicate at home the taste that you get at these stalls. I've posted the same video in the recipes section. The ingredients and method given there is more suitable for home cooking. Happy Eating!

Thanks vikas....Your video just took me back to my hometown "Mumbai"! I absolutely love the street-side pavbhaji and its impossible to find the same taste anywhere else in the world. Pls post some more videos with inside secrets of the vendors in mumbai with other favourites like bhelpuri, vadapav etc....

Hi, I just stumbled on this video while looking for Pav Bhaji receipe on internet.. I always make at home but it never tastes like "Mumbai Bhaaji", I tried this version and yummy... my husband kept licking his fingers...We are in US so really miss Indian Street food. Please keep posting such good receipies and yes from authentic street food sources only!
