When the classic flavours of creamy, cheesy, gooey fondue and Mumbai’s favourite street food Pav bhaji are perfectly married with each other, is known as pav bhaji fondue|Pav bhaji fondue recipe

This easy recipe creates a fantastic fusion and a smart makeover of famous street food Pav bhaji.

In this Pav bhai fondue recipe, the mashed mixture of vegetables is cooked with cheese, milk, cream & pav bhaji masala. It is served hot with buttered pav/dinner rolls.

Don’t get surprised as this recipe has no potatoes, but retains all the other key ingredients to make pav  bhaji. The milk and cheese here add a beautiful texture to this fondue and creates a mouthwatering fusion of two unique dishes.

 

What is Fondue?

According to WIKIPEDIA fondue is melted cheese dish served in a pot over a portable stove ignited with a candle and eaten by dipping bread into the cheese using long-stemmed forks.

Loved the idea of making fondue at home? Serve this fondue when guests come over or on cold winter nights gather around dinner table to enjoy this piping hot fondue with your family.
