Pav Bhaji – My Sunday Treat

DSC_0053Hi friends…. I’m here yet again with a recipe… That’s because I tried it out today… The later I post it the more ingredients I will tend to forget to mention. Hopefully everything’s going great for all. The summer doesn’t seem to have settled down a bit despite the heavy rains. I know we should be treating ourselves to something chilled in this weather. But it so happens sometimes that we feel we need something more to fill our stomach in addition to the chilled stuffs. And this is how I planned to make Pav Bhaji. It had really been long since I tortured my folks with my delicacy. So I plotted and planned and got into making it. The recipe is simple (as for me, I feel it’s really simple). Just fry a few vegetables, add some masalas and add in water as per requirement. You’re done!!! Come on let’s check it out then.


1 big capsicum

1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste (I used 2 garlic flakes and a 2 inch piece ginger for the paste)

1 onion finely chopped

2 medium sized tomatoes

2-3 potatoes (boiled)

1 small cup boiled green peas

1-2 tbsp Pav Bhaji Masala

1 tsp Turmeric powder

1-2 tsp Chilly Powder

Salt as per requirement

Water as per requirement

1 tbsp Oil – for frying

1 tbsp Salted butter – for garnishing – I used nutrilite butter



o    Heat Oil in a pan and add in the ginger garlic paste and fry for a while.

o    Add in the finely chopped onions and fry till transparent

o    Add in the finely chopped Capsicum and fry till the color changes

o    Add in the finely chopped tomatoes and fry for a while

o    Add in the mashed potatoes and green peas and mix well. Slowly add in water as per your requirement

o    Add turmeric powder, salt and the pav bhaji masala and mix well.

o    Check the consistency and pour in water if necessary and bring to boil

o    Remove from flame and add in the butter

The yummy bhaji is ready to indulge in. Garnish it with squeezed lime, finely chopped onions and coriander leaves.

Serve it hot with toasted pav. Hope you guys do enjoy this recipe.

See you soon.
