Pav Bhaji


Posted by Picasa
One of the things that I miss most about my homeland "India " is the street food , hands down so  Delish . Out on the busy streets through the hustle bustle of daily grind stalls of fast food lined up, spices being thrown in, oil splashed and the aroma is highly appetizing and inviting .

After living in a western country for long your body tends to change gets used to the food that you put in, so after years when we visit India the dilemma is always out there about should we eat street food. but that is the essence of traveling back home right ?  doing or reliving things you did with family and friends , even if it is just standing on a street side with shopping bags in one hand and a plate of yummy pav bhaji in other hand .

Pav bhaji is one of those street foods best enjoyed on the street standing in a crowded space watching the cook create the mouth watering delight. It is basically dinner rolls preferably not too soft with more texture that is accompanied with a mashed and  spiced version of veges like potatoes, peas, cauliflower,  well for the rest jus check the recipe.






What you need :

Dinner rolls : 1 pack
potatoes : 2 big ones 
tomatoes : 4 chopped
red onion: 2 big chopped
ginger garlic paste : 1 tablespoon
peas : 1/2 cup
cauliflower : 1/2 cup
bell peppers: 1 green chopped
lemon : 2 cub sized
cilantro : chopped fine
salt : to taste
oil : as needed
butter : optional
Pav bhajji masala : lots out there 
(sanjay kapoor and everest personal fav )
turmeric powder : 1 teaspoon

Boil the vegetables potatoes, peas, cauliflower , bell peppers till well cooked usually these are traditionally  cooked in a pressure cooker with one one whistle which works great. After the cooker has cooled down , open it and mash the veges up leaving some chunks in are totally fine.
Meanwhile cut the dinner rolls in halves and spread some butter or olive oil .
In a pan heat oil add the chopped onions sauté , then add ginger garlic paste to this cook for a  few mins till raw taste is gone, later 
add the chopped tomatoes cook on medium heat add salt , add the pav bhajji masala .
Add the mashed veges also if too thick add water if needed mix well .
Add salt as needed .
On a flat pan start toasting the rolls that have been buttered or oiled up till they are slightly brown .
Serve the rolls with the pav bhajji , garnish with cilantro and a cube of lemon , also can add chopped onions for added yuminess !
Last but not the least a small dallop of butter in the bhajji just takes it to the next level.
Njoy!
