Pav Bhaji

Again, my today's dish has to do with bread. It is hard to resist bread especially when the accompaniment is unparalleled Bhaji. Pav Bhaji is the quintessential street food particularly in Mumbai. When it comes to Indian street food, Pav Bhaji is my favorite hands down. I used a store bought Pav Bhaji Masala, main stay in my pantry.Most of the times, I use Pav Bhaji masala in various items in place of Garam Masala, which works perfectly well.

3 Potatoes,peeled and cubed
1/2 head of cauliflower, florets separated
10 beans, chopped
4 carrots, peeled, chopped
1 cup peas
4 tomatoes, chopped
1 Onion, chopped, divided + 1/4 cup extra to serve with the Pavs
4 green chillies, chopped
3 tbsp Pav Bhaji Masala
Lemons quartered into wedges
1 bunch Coriander chopped
2 tbsps butter + Extra butter for the Pavs
8 Laadi Pavs

  • Boil all the vegetables with sufficient water in a pressure cooker.
  • Set the boiled vegetables in a colander so that any excess water drains out
  • Heat 2 tbsps butter in a pan
  • Add 1/2 of chopped onions and chillies
  • Saute till the onions are translucent
  • Add the tomatoes and cook until they are soft
  • Add the boiled vegetables and using a slotted spoon mash the vegetables.
  • Stir in the Pav Bhaji Masala
  • Continue cooking till all the vegetables are combined well and the curry forms a thick gravy.

For the Pavs-
  • Heat a pan and swirl a tablespoon of butter
  • Cut the pav into halves and place them on the pan. The white side should be directly on the pan while the brown side should be face up
  • Cook till they are lightly browned
  • Serve the pav with the bhaji
  • Garnish with Chopped onions and coriander
  • Serve with a lemon wedge
