Pav Bhaji


Pav Bhaji Masala 2 table spoon
Potato 1 Cup (Boiled and mashed)
French Beans 1 Cup (Boiled)
Cauliflower 1 Cup (Boiled)
Green Peas 1 Cup (Boiled)
Onions 3 Cups (Finely Chopped)
Tomatoes 3 Cups (Finely Chopped or grated)
Capsicum 1 Cup (Finely Chopped)
Ginger 2 tsp (Finely Chopped)
Garlic 2 tsp (Finely Chopped)
Coriander enough for dressing
Salted Butter to taste
Lemon to taste
Salt to taste
Pavs (squarish soft buns )

For Bhaji ( pav bhaji gravy)

Heat the butter in a pan and add garlic and ginger. Fry until garlic turns slightly brown. Add the onions (keeping one cup aside for garnishing ) and fry and until transparent. Add the tomatoes and capsicum and fry for 2 minutes. Add all the vegetables. Add Pav Bhaji Masala and Salt and some water (add more water if u like the bhaji thin). I use Everest Pav Bhajij masala. Bring to Boil. Remove from flame. Add Coriander and Butter.

For Pavs ( bread)

Slit pavs horizontally leaving one edge attached (to open like a book). Apply butter (as desired) and roast open on a griddle till hot and soft with the surface crisp on both sides.

Serve hot with bhaji, a piece of lemon and finely chopped onion.
