A popular street food in Mumbai, Pav Bhaji is a vegetable curry served alongside soft bread. As with most Indian recipes – street food or otherwise – it is a dish with innumerable variations.

There’s no doubting that brownies are among the easiest treats to bake. Equally, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to effort and time spent cooking. That’s why these No Bake Chilli Brownies are such a triumph. They take the simple and the loved and improve on at least 50% of that.
