Indian Cuisine: Mumbai Pav Bhaji

$25.00

Pav Bhaji is the ultimate street food from Mumbai, a.k.a. Bollywood. It’s a mad mash of potatoes, tomatoes, onions, cauliflower, green peppers, green peas and spices, and you scoop it up with an airy, soft pav — a bread roll. It’s also a remarkably easy dish to make, and it comes together in minutes. You can make it gluten-free by using gf bread rolls. A soy-free and nut-free, vegetarian recipe.

FOR BHAJI

1 tbsp + 1 tbsp butter

3 tomatoes, finely chopped

¼ cup frozen peas

½ bell pepper, finely chopped

2 large potatoes* boiled & mashed

1 tsp salt

1 tsp + ¼ tsp kashmiri red chilli powder*

¼ tsp turmeric / haldi

1 tsp + ½ tsp pav bhaji masala*

1 tsp + 1 tsp kasuri methi / dry fenugreek leaves

2 tbsp + 1 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1 red medium onion, finely chopped

TO TOAST PAV

Notes

  1. I prefer Yukon gold potatoes because of the smooth texture.
  2. Any store bought brand Pav Bhaji Masala will work; I prefer MTR or Badshah brands.
  3. Kashmiri chili adds color without making spicy. 
  4. I prefer Indian-grocery-sold Pav Bhaji buns; they are softer and fluffier than bread rolls /slider buns.
