Paav Bhaji

Paav Bhaji is the most popular street food of India, which need no introduction.........I was born and brought up in southern part of India, and I had no idea what's Paav Bhaji until I was married and of to Bombay.....I was introduced to this by "J", who's a big fan of Phav Bhaji and Vada Pav. So, years after also, his love for them continued and it has become one of our comfort food.......

Ingredients:
  • 5 medium size potatoes(boiled and peeled), 2cups tomatoes (diced), 1cup capsicum/green pepper, 1cup gen peas (I used frozen ones), 1/2cup cauliflower, 1/2cup carrot, 2cups onions(chopped), 2cloves garlic(chopped), 1/2cup coriander leaves, 1tsp.red chilli powder, 1/2tsp. garam masala, 2tsp.paav bhaji masala, 2tsp. lemon juice, salt to taste.

Method:

  • Add green pepper, carrot, green peas, cauliflower in the food processor and chop them to fine pieces. In a pan add 4tsp.butter, once it's warm enough add chopped garlic, 1 cup chopped onions(use remaining onion for garnishing) and fry till they are translucent. Now add the garam masala, chilli powder,tomatoes and cook till they are soft. Now add the paav bhaji masala of your choice and cook the tomatoes until they pulp up. Then add the vegetable mixture to it, mix it well, cover and cook till the vegetables are totally cooked, then add the boiled and mashed potato, mix well and cook till the mixture thickens, add salt and boil it until you get the desired consistency. Then add generous amount of butter, mix it well and remove from the heat.

Serving:

  • Apply butter to pav, and roast pav until they turn golden brown. While serving add chopped onions, coriander leaves, required amount of lemon juice to bhaji.
