Pav Bhaji is a popular Indian fast food and as the name suggests,soft buns(Pav) is served with a Bhaji(Vegetables cooked in a tomato base).I have tried with different combination of vegetables and this is my friend's recipe which is tasty and easy to make too.


Pav Bhaji

Vegetables(cauliflower,capsicum and green peas)

Tomato

Ginger garlic paste
1 tsp
Pav bhaji masala

1 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped

Bhaji preparation

Pav Bhaji

  • Pressure cook Potato and the vegetables.
  • Mash them roughly and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan,add onions and fry for a minute.Add ginger-garlic paste and fry well till the raw smell goes off and the onions turn translucent.
  • Add finely chopped tomatoes and fry well till they turn mushy.
  • Add Pav bhaji masala,salt and fry well.
  • Add the boiled and mashed vegetables and add water to get desired bhaji consistency.
  • Simmer for 10 mins in low flame till the vegetables blend well with the masala mixture.
  • Finally add butter and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
To Serve:
  • Cut each pav bun horizontally into two.
  • Heat a tawa,add some butter and toast the buns.
  • Serve the buns with bhaji and finely chopped onion and lemon slice.
Note:
  • You can add a tblsp of tomato paste(store bought) while sauting the tomatoes to get a rich red colour.(I din't add this time)
  • The bhaji consistency can be a little thinner than shown in the picture.Adjust water accordingly.I have also not mashed the vegetables completely,but you can mash it completely as per your preference.
  • The star ingredient is Pav bhaji masala and I  have used store bought masala.If you want a spicier version,add some red chilli powder while adding pav bhaji masala.
