Sample Pav

by Ashish

As opposed to misal pav.

This is simply slices of bread, and a plateful of extremely hot, extremely spicy matar (peas) rassa, with pakodas as a side dish. Had as breakfast, it is not for the faint hearted.

I don’t know of too many places in Pune where you can get this dish – but there is a hand cart that does brisk business in the lane opposite Champion Sports at Deccan. It’s frequented primarily by rickshaw guys though, so if you’re the snooty-nosed kind, you might want to give this place a miss.

But if hot and fiery is up your alley, be sure to give it a try.
