Pav Bhaji Masala Powder
It is not required to be made at home especially in India. It is so easily available around that you would hardly want to invest your time an energy. However, going by the sub standard flavours coming primarily from the need to be competitive it is always worth trying it once at home. The other advantage is that you can adjust the taste as per your requirement. Some like their bhaji spicy others prefer tangy. I prefer a bit of both.
