Indian meals are a combination of various things. There is the main course along with side accompaniments like chutney and achar, and we even have our drinks. Without these things, our meal may look incomplete. While the essence of the meal is the same across cultures, the ingredients and recipes might differ. For instance, many people love to have pavs (bread) with various curries and sabzis. The pav culture has grown so much over the years that we also have unique recipes that only go with that special bun. There is something so yummy about a buttery crisp pav that we enjoy it with anything! So, if you also want to have some special pav recipes, here we have a list of pav dishes that you can make for lunch. Check out these recipes below:
