pav bhaji recipe



I remember,the first time when I ate Pav bhaji in my home town Salem,in a restaurant called Salem cafe.The very instant I fell in love with pav bhaji Love Struck.I love the butter smell in both the Pav(Bread)and the Bhaji….But never knew I will make of my own! But if I knew this is so simple to make,I would have made this long time before and made very often…But its okay,better than be late than never right…?
        Pav Bhaji                     
            When I saw in my sis in law’s blog,from that time I wanted to try,even my friend Sangeeta asked me to try and gave a pack of MTR Pav Bhaji Masala.I simply followed the recipe given in the back side of the pack..And it came out really very well…please do try and let me know if I am wrong!!

Ingredients:

Potato 2 nos.big
Beans,carrot,green peas,cauliflower- all chopped altogether 1 cup
Onion,chopped 1 no. big
Capsicum 1 medium sized
Tomato,Chopped 2 nos. medium sized
Green chilli,slit into 2 2 nos
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Butter 3 tblsp
Red Chilli powder 1/2 tsp
Pav Bhaji masala MTR 2 tsp
Salt As needed
Fresh lemon As needed to squeeze on top
Pav/white bread/Buns As needed
Onion and coriander leaves,chopped As needed for garnishing.

Method:

  1. Pressure cook the potatoes(peel the skin of potatoes and chop them just like other veggies) and other chopped veggies together with little water,upto 3 whistles in pressure cooker.
  2. Mash nicely with a potato masher and set aside.
  3. Heat a broad pan with butter,add onion and ginger garlic paste,fry till onion turns transparent and raw smell of the ginger garlic paste goes off.
  4. Then add the capsicum and fry for a minute,then add tomatoes,salt,pav Bhaji masala and red chilli powder.
  5. Fry till tomatoes turns soft and mushy and then add all the veggies,stir well.
  6. Simmer for 5 min and mash with a ladle so that all the veggies get mixed well, add butter if desired.
  7. Bhaji is ready now!
Note:
  • Veggies can be of your choice,u can add or reduce one or two….
  • I used burger buns here,which was very nice substitute to the pav buns…

Bhaji

Garnish with finely chopped onion,coriander leaves and squeeze lemon as needed and spread the bhaji in between a well golden roasted buns/Pav/bread and enjoy hot!

Buns spread with bhaji and topped with chopped onion and coriander leaves
