Pav Bhaji - enjoy at home

What's your favourite street food? Mine is Pav bhaji, anytime...I've been planning to make it at home for a long time now. Finally, I made it today and it was so yum...


Potato - 1 large, cubed
Cauliflower - 3 to 4 florets
Carrot - 1/2 of a medium sized, cubed
Green peas - 1/4 cup
Capsicum/Bell Pepper - 1/2 of a medium sized, seeded and chopped fine
Green chilly - 1 or 2, chopped fine
Tomato - 2, chopped fine or minced
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Pav Bhaji masala - 2 tbsp(I used MDH brand)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Pav bread - 6 to 8
Butter as needed

To serve

Onion - 1, finely chopped
Coriander leaves chopped
Lemon wedges


1. Cook potato, cauliflower, carrot and green peas together in a pressure cooker adding just enough water to cook. Mash it using a potato masher and keep aside.
2. In a pan, heat oil and saute capsicum for a few minutes. Add ginger garlic paste and mix well. Add the tomatoes and saute till oil starts appearing. Mash it a little.
3. Add the cooked and mashed veggies, pav bhaji masala, salt and enough water to the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for few minutes.
4. In a flat tawa, add butter. Slit the pav bread into 2, and toast both sides well.

To serve, take the bhaji in a bowl and top it with chopped onions and coriander leaves. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice and enjoy with the buttered pav !!!
