    I use this recirpe with some variation , My breads are slightly grilled with butter or low fat butter prior to serving.
    For those who do not know what is pav Bhaji masala, it is a spice consist of cumin powder, cinanmon, cloves and nutmeg. You can make it more spicy using red pepper.

    I make this recipe with a touch of I can't believe it;s not butter light. It gives a smooth and creamy texture. I also garnish with very finely diced onions (raw) and tomatoes, with some cilantro/corriander. Yummy!!! - 10/23/08
