It is due to the pronuncitaion that the word "bhaaji" which means elder brother in punjabi is often pronounced as "paaji" by hindi speaking people.
 
When the punjabi letter "bh" is pronounced, it is pronounced with a deeper sound which is something in between p and bh sounds.
In hindi the letters are either bh or p that is why punjabi bh sounds like p when said by hindi speaking people. This is the reason it often sounds like paaji instead of bhaaji. It has nothing to do with to be called as father or brother.
 
The word "paaji" in hindi is a different word with some negative meaning somthing like cunning or so, I am not sure.
 
No offence to hindi speaking people.

exactly, its all in the pronunciation.   it is actually bhaji b/c the bh sound is different in punjabi than in hindi.   just like bhangra is always mispronounced in hindi movies shows etc, so is bhaji.

Bhaji? like veggies? LOL
 
I thought paaji is a short form of PRAJI.. PRaji means brother, isn't it?

i'm punjabi too and can speak it very fluently as well as read and write it. 
 
just like its spelled bhangra and not pangra its the same pronunciation when we say bhaji.  the bh in punjabi is not pronounced the same way as the bh in hindi.  so for all of you people who are getting confused with the bhaji as in snack......i hope this explains it.

i agree with u. it is technically spelled bhaji in phonetic english if u translate from punjabi  but pronounced paaji so its okay to write paaji on something casual lika a forum
