Mom used to make this simple bhaaji for lunchbox (dabba) sometimes. I used to look forward to this bhaaji. But once my lunchbox days in Mumbai were over, I hardly ate this bhaaji again. Just the other day, I suddenly remembered this bhaaji. So decided to make it myself. This bhaaji also makes a wonderful filling for the toasted sandwiches.
