    charlie #5's Note:

    This is SO good. We like to dip pita or parantha bread in it. Bet it would be good wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. Our friends from India dip hot dog buns in it. It makes a lot - freeze some for later. The spice packet I buy at an Indian grocers or Middle Eastern store. The label says Badshah Bombay Bhaji Pav Masala. It comes in a 3 1/4 oz pkg. Use half of it. I have no idea how many people this serves.

      Looove this recipe! I couldn't find the masala sauce (although I'll admit that I didn't try too hard to be authentic)... But at my local grocery store (big chain kinda deal) I found "Patak's Tikka Masala Curry sauce-did the trick! I followed the rest of the recipe and added the sauce instead of water, with some sriracha for more of a kick. Oh, and I threw in a little fresh cilantro. I scoured the internet for a good pav bhaji recipe, and this one was fantastic! Me (and my roommates!) absolutely loved it. Be warned, however, that it makes a TON of food! So good, thanks so much for sharing!
