I had some pav buns which was about to expire. Actually I bought them to try vada pav but I couldn’t make it as I was busy in trying some Gokulashtami recipes. This evening, Raksha was asking some snacks to munch and then I realised about these pav buns. I was not in a mood to make pav bhaji or vada pav. So I quickly browsed some easy pav bun recipes and found this in Sanjeev Kapoor’s video. 

It was very simple and found it yummy with spices & masalas. I tried immediately & it was a big hit with my daughter. I too loved it a lot. Its a very easy, simple and quick snacks recipe which can be made in minutes. Even bachelors can try this as it has no grinding job.

In the actual recipe cucumber, tomatoes were used & it was titled as jain masala pav sandwich without onions. But I used onion & boiled potato slices as I din’t have cucumber in hand. So the choice is yours. It tastes yummy however its made. Do try this easy sandwich recipe for your kids evening snacks. I am sure, they will love it. Not just kids, we parents can also have one & enjoy!
