Pav Bhaji


Hi Friends,
Pav bhaji, a famous delicacy of Mumbai. Now in whole India you can find stalls of Pav Bhaji. My love this very much. I make my own versions at home. Now and then my kids and hubby demands for this. So make it often. Even some times sudden demands raises from my family and i make it even if any ingredients is less. I replace some ingredients with other and believe me i never disappointed.  I make it bit runny as my kids like it that way. If you want to make it bit thicker then use less water. You can use your favorite veggies for more healthier version. 

Pav - 1 packet (contains 6 pav) you can use home made
Pav Bhaji Masala - 2 tsp 
Boiled Potato  - 3 medium
Peas                - 1 cup
Beans              - 1/2 cup
Onion              - 3 medium (i used 2 tbsp tomato puree)

Gingar             - 1 inch piece
Garlic              - 8-10 pods

  1. I ran out of tomato so i used tomato puree, that why bhaji is less red in color.
  2. Add any of your favorite veggie. I like only these two. 
  3. Add chilly pdr and salt as per your taste.
  4. I used store bought pao, you can use home made buns (recipe coming soon).
  5. You can mash veggies after boiling them, i like them tit bit size.
