Pav bhaji

Pav bhaji is a wonderful Indian street food . I love this as  it combines all possible veggies in it.The very first time when i tried pav bhaji it was a big flop.  But then I learned the basic secret behind the recipe. Here it goes like the amount of onion and tomato together must be equal to the veggie combo all together. And one should be generous in adding masala powder and very important butter. 

Ingredients :

1. Carrot - 2
2.Beans - 1/2 cup
3.Peas - 1/2 cup
4.Potato - 2-3 nos
5.Capsicum - 1
6.Cauliflower - 1/2 cup of florets
7.Onion - 1 big
8.Tomato - 1 big
9.Ginger garlic paste - 2 Tbsp
10.Chilli powder - 2 tsp
11.Pav bhaji powder - 2 Tbsp
12.Butter - As required

Method :

1. Pressure cook all the veggies 1 to 6 of ingredients  with little water.

2. Take a pan and add 2- 3 tbsp of butter. Add ginger garlic paste. Fry until the raw smell goes off.Then add finely chopped onion.

3. When the onion turns translucent, add finely chopped tomato. If you are using capsicum then it needs to be fried along with tomatoes .(not to be boiled along with all other veggies) .

4. Add 2 Tbsp of pav bhaji masala powder along with 1 tsp of chilli powder. 

5. Mash the cooked veggies with a potato masher.

6. Then add the mashed veggies to the pan.

7. Add 1/4 th cup of water.

8. Leave it until the water completely dries. 

9. Meanwhile toast buns/bread with butter.

10. Serve pav bhaji with toasted buns and finely chopped onion and a slice of lemon.
