  15. Tawa pulav looks so well done and love the bowl of raita you are serving as a side dish. I wish I had one of this big tawas they use in the north for these delicacies. They do turn out well in the regular pans but nothing like the pleasure of using those humongous tawas and pretending to look like those pro's by the carts :)!!!

  30. Pav bhaji spice seems to be very popular around the blogosphere lately. I must try it. And I think I'd like your tawa pulao better than pav bhaji, personally.
