Pav Bhaji

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
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • 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.
