Vanakkam…..officially signing in from Chennai. Yeah now its official that I moved to Chennai for all good….As many of you know that I was here in Chennai, in January for a week to set up my new rented flat…..being a small trip….. I could not see much of Chennai and could not even look around my flat completely….Now I am here, will update you everything about my new place, new house, new kitchen, new neighbors and much more….in upcoming posts….
Yesterday though being Sunday, my dear husband has to go to office, as his project is near to release date….he already told me that he will be coming late in night and told me to have my dinner and sleep. As I am in a process of setting up my new kitchen and still in a process to get new gas connection…. I am using induction stove and microwave for my routine cooking. Though I have bought induction stove three years back, I have never used it till now…Now it is completely a new toy to play with in the kitchen to me….. when last night my dear husband called me at around 12.30 and said, his friend who is coming to drop him home….may also join in for dinner or for a quick snack….I was like ‘aaaaa’….what I could make at that hour in night??…..opening my just set kitchen cabinet, I saw ‘Vegit’ Pav Bhaji Mix…which I got in courier for review and totally forgot about it, in setting up my new house…..
At this ghostly hour of night, this Pav Bhaji Mix is like rescue to me….Phata Phat, I started making pav bhaji with the instructions on the packet….and within no time scrumptious pav bhaji was ready….by the time, I started arranging plates on table….doorbell rang….it was my husband with his friend….Wow….pav bhaji….they both said in chorus….I smiled and said…’Yes’…..Now I am ten times more hungry said my husband…..
Without any delay, I served pav bhaji….then my husband’s friend said, Bhabhi if I would have gone from outside, then I would have missed this delicious meal….Thank you so much….then when he left my husband asked me…how I could manage to make such a yum pav bhaji so fast….Like a TV commercial I showed him…it is not my magic, it is the magic of this Pav Bhaji Mix, from ‘Vegit’….Really a quick fix for occasions like this…..
As I already told you, this is good, spicy and yummy quick fix for those un time hunger rants, quick and easy evening snack and good option for quick dinners when you are lazy or tried to cook elaborate. No chopping of vegetables, no sautéing of masala’s.....In five easy steps, you get piping hot, spicy and yummy Pav Bhaji ready. Homemade is always best…but at times when you are hungry and craving for pav bhaji or at times when you have sudden guests or at times when kids ask for a snack like this then ‘Vegit’ Pav Bhaji will be come for your rescue….I know you will be preparing your grocery list for the month…as it the first week of the month…include this in your shopping list and try it out…. I am sure you will gonna like this product….
Nothing can beat homemade food…but I tell you this Pav Bhaji Mix is not less than homemade bhaji….subtle flavours, heavenly aroma and beautiful color…I somehow felt the taste of potato in the recipe is overpowering and could not get the taste of other vegetables….may be because the ratio of potato used in the mix is more than other veggies…..
