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.

Off-Course you will need a tortillas or even if you don’t have that, you can use a flat bread/Roti/Chapati, to use as wrapper for your filling.

For filling use any vegetables you like. I have used lettuce, cabbage, carrots, green chillies, pickled onions, green pepper. Julienne it or cut into small cubes. For mixing them together you can use Mayo or if you want to go healthy way, use yogurt of your preferred taste.

That’s all the things you need. Wrap them in your style. Serve them the way you want. I have served them hot with Mint and Tomato dip. 🙂

Enjoy!!!
