I was going to call this a mast-ney, since it really is a hybrid between a chutney and a proper accompaniment. While at that, I have to mention that eating dried fish is an acquired taste. If you have never eaten this before, and if the foodie in you is daring enough for an adventure - try it out in extremely small portions. But I also need to warn you - once you inculcate this taste, chances are you may be compelled to cook this up, even if you need a reason only to smile! :)
An attempt at making my mom's yummy pav bhaji! The recipe is fairly simple but requires some patience as the cooking time may take up to 45 minutes! Totally worth the wait, though. Note: If you're keen on going healthy, skip the butter in the dish and for toasting the buns. You can also add other veggies like cooked cauliflower and carrots (finely chopped) into the pav bhaji if desired. Note: the pav bhaji masala can become quite spicy, so I add a few teaspoons at a time and taste to check the spiciness.
