Pav Bhaji


Pav Bhaji is one of the favourite snacks in Indian Cuisine. It is particularly very famous in Mumbai and you can find street vendors all across the city offering this yummy dish.

Pav Bhaji is quite easy to prepare and can be made at home without too much hassle. Bhaji can be made with any vegetables & served with store bought pav. Here, we don't get pav so I use burger buns which taste great for this dish.

Ingredients :
  1. 10 - pavs (small squares of bread shaped like buns)
  2. 1 - large potato, boiled and mashed slightly
  3. 2 cups - mixed boiled vegetables (cauliflower, carrots, peas)
  4. 1 - large onion, chopped
  5. 1 1/2 cups - of chopped tomatoes
  6. 1 cup - tomato puree
  7. 1 cup - sliced capsicum
  8. Fennel powder - 1/2 tsp
  9. 1 tsp - cumin seeds
  10. 1/2 tsp - turmeric powder
  11. 1/2 tsp - chilli powder
  12. 2 - green chillies, chopped finely
  13. Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  14. 2 tbsp - pav bhaji masala
  15. Butter to cook
  16. Salt to taste

Method :

1. Heat about 3-4 tbsp of butter , add onions and saute them till soft.

2. Add capsicum and saute for another min. Add ginger-garlic paste along with chillies. Saute another 2 min.

3. Add the tomatoes and puree. Mix well. Add the boiled vegetables along with the potatoes, mix well and if the gravy is thick add little water.

4. Meanwhile heat a non-stick pan and grease it with butter. Take a bun/Pav, slice it in half and cook with butter until lightly brown on both the sides.


Serve hot with the bhaji(gravy) garnish with cilantro and lemon wedges.
