It’s been 4 years and I haven’t visited India, still every time I close my eyes I can smell & taste the food especially from HONEST – my favorite place to eat in Ahmedabad. I love their Pav Bhaji and Pulav, nothing can beat it. Try this simple recipe with few ingredients, next time you are in your kitchen. I am sure you will love it too.
