I love spicy food specially street food, like aaloo tikki, golgappa and Pav Bhaji. Yummy!! Today I am going to share Pav Bhaji recipe which is so simple to make that after making it for the first time, I was so disappointed with myself that why I didn’t tried it earlier 😛

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 6 Pavs
  • 2 cups mixed Boiled Vegetables like Potato, Cauliflower, Peas, carrots, beans (you can add or remove any vegetable per your preference, like I didn’t used carrots as they taste sweet)
  • 3-4 Garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 Tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
  • ½ tbsp Red chilli powder
  • ½ tbsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tbsp Garam Masala
  • 1-2 tbsp Pav Bhaji Masala(Mix spices)
  • ½ tbsp mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1-2 green chilli for garnishing
  • Cilantro for garnishing
  • Salt as per taste

Method

  • Heat butter in a pan and add mustard seeds.
  • Add Garlic cloves and Onions till they become translucent.
  • Mix Ginger Garlic paste and cook.
  • Add tomatoes and salt. Cook on medium heat until the mixture becomes mushy.
  • Add spices, chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala, pav bhaji masala.
  • Cook on low flame for 2-3 minutes and then add boiled mixed vegetables.
  • Add water as per required consistency and cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes.
  • Mash it properly while cooking.
  • You can garnish it with Cilantro, green chillies or butter. 
  • Serve it with Pav, separately fried on a pan with butter.

 

That’s it. 🙂

Simple and sweet. If health conscious avoid butter and use less potatoes in gravy.

I have served it with sweet mango chutney and onions.
