Pav bhaji

Pav bhaji is one of the many street foods in India,which is very tasty and also a very satisfying meal.

Bread buns or bread rolls: as per requirement

Spread or butter: 100gm

Cauliflower: 10 florets

Red capsicum: 1 whole diced

Potatoes: 3 peeled and diced

Green chillies: 2 chopped

Onions: 2 large finely chopped

Tomatoes: 4 medium sized chopped

Pav bhaji masala: 3 tablespoons

Amchur powder: 1 tablespoon

Ginger garlic paste: 2 tablespoons

Red chilli powder: 1 table spoon

Salt: as per taste

Lemon: 1

Coriander leaves: plenty finely chopped

Food color red: 2 pinches


Pressure cook capsicum,potatoes,cauliflower until nice and soft.

If there is any water left in the pressure cooker,drain it and keep it aside too.

Once cooked mash the veges and keep it aside.

Now take a pan add  4-5 spoons of butter  and once heated add onions,green chillies,ginger garlic paste.

Now add pavbhaji masala,amchur powder,red chilli powder,salt and Saute for a minute or two.

Later add chopped tomatoes and cook until tomatoes are mushy and cooked well in spices.

Later add pressure cooked and mashed veges and mix it well.

Now add drained water from pressure cooked veges.

Add some more butter,coriander leaves,food color and lemon juice and cook until you see a layer of butter on top or on sides or until veges absorb all the spices Atleast for 10 -  15minutes more.

Now slice the buns and spread butter on it and toast it on either sides.

serve the toasted buns with bhaji,chopped coriander,chopped onions and a dash of lemon.

Tastes so yumm😊😊

Notes: you can either drain the water or mash the veges with water in it. I find it easier to mash the veges without too much water in it.
