Pav Bhaji

Print Friendly and PDF
I usually prepare this in a large quantity for dinner and my breakfast next day follows the same.So you can understand how big fan i am of pavbhaji.Infact,not only pav bhaji i am a huge fan of any chaat,so i end up preparing only chaats for dinner sometimes.
3 Big Alu
1 cup Gobi florets
1/2 cup Green peas,fresh/frozen
1 Green capsicum finely chopped
1 Big Onion finely chopped
2 Big ripen Tomatoes chopped
2 tbsp Tomato paste(gives good red colour)
1 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
2 tbsp Pav Bhaji masala
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 cup corriander leaves
1 Big lemon squeezed
2 tbsp Butter( i used lite butter,cholesterol free)
1 tsp oil

Pressure cook Alu,gobi and green peas for 2 to 3 whistles.In a big tawa or kadai,heat a spoon of butter along with oil,fry onions till translucent,add ginger-garlic paste,capsicum and fry for a minute,add chopped tomatoes,tomato paste and cook till it leaves the juices,add red chilli powder,pav bhaji masala,now add all the cooked vegetables and slightly mash the vegetables(leave the peas unmashed).Add salt and cover it cook for 2 mins,then add lemon juice,butter,corriander leaves and give a stir and take off from the flame.
Serve hot with Butter roasted ladi pav(i used whole wheat ladi pav,again calorie conscious),lemon wedges,finely chopped onions and corriander.

I am sending this to "Sunday Snacks -Chaats/Indian Street Food" event at pallavi's blog.
