Pav Bhaji is such a comfort food. For lots of Indians, it probably reminds them of local street food. While I definitely did not get to walk around Indian streets to eat some road side stalls, I have definitely taken a liking to Pav Bhajis.
- Potato: 1 large, diced in small pieces
- Frozen veggies: 2 cups, I used green beans, carrots, corn
- Onion: 1 large chopped
- Tomato: Chopped 1 1/2 cups
- Green chillies: 2 chopped fine
- Ginger Paste: 1 tsp
- Garlic Paste: 1 tsp
- Cumin seeds: 1 tsp
- Fennel seeds: 1 tsp
- Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp
- Chilli powder: 1/2 or 1 tsp (depending on spice taste)
- Pav Bhaji Masala: 2 tbsp
- Salt to taste
- Pav i.e bread buns
- Coriander leaves
Saute the onions, fennel and cumin seeds in the oil until they soften. Next add the ginger and garlic pastes and the green chillies and saute for a couple of minutes.
Add the masala, potatoes, tomatoes and some salt, 1/4 cup of water, and cook on medium low until the potatoes has cooked a bit.
Finally add the frozen veggies and continue to cook on medium low. Once cooked, butter the buns and toast it on a non-stick pan until it has lightly browned on both sides. Garnish the gravy with coriander and serve it with the toasted buns.
