Pav bhaji recipe

It has been a long time, since i have written a post, so starting off with a simple delicacy, which i consider myself as an expert at...
This is my standard recipe for guest who dont give me a prior notice of organizing things.........

Pav bhaji recipe

2 boiled potatoes
3 chopped onions(keep a little quantity of chopped onions aside for serving purpose)
3 tomatoes
coriander leaves
dhaniya jeera powder
ginger garlic paste
salt to taste
chilly powder
1 capsicum chopped
handful of boiled cauliflower florets
Pav bhaji masala(My preferred one is Badshah Bombay pav bhaji masala)

  1. Take a pan, add butter, add onion, dhaniya jeera powder, hing, salt, and ginger garlic paste, saute it for sometime, until onion becomes soft
  2. Add 3 tomatoes, and add chilly powder, capsicum, pav bhaji masala.
  3. Cook it for a while, until tomatoes are ready.
  4. Now add boiled mashed potatoes, cauliflower florets, and cook for 3-5 mins
  5. Garnish with coriander leaves, and add a dash of butter before serving, delicious pav bhaji ready....
Serve it with lemon, and some chopped onions.

The advantage of pav bhaji is you can get away with cooking of roti's, and majority of the preparation of the dish is done by the great pressure cooker...and the result is an effortless tasty dish....

And if you are left with the sabji, you can always use it for toast sandwich, which is even better :), trust me
