Indian meals are a combination of several things. There is the main course along with side dishes such as chutney and achar, and we even have our drinks. Without these things, our meal can look incomplete. While the essence of the meal is the same in all cultures, the ingredients and recipes may differ. For example, many people like pavs (bread) with various curries and sabzis. The pav culture has grown so much over the years that we also have unique recipes that just go with that special sandwich. There’s something so delicious about a buttery, crunchy pav that we enjoy it everywhere! 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:
