PAV BHAJI ( Juhu Beach Style )

Pav bhaji is a popular street food of Mumbai. Unlike other street foods which are mostly fried, this is a healthier option as it has all the vegetables and is made with butter.

Carrots ..... 1
Potato ...... 1
Cauliflower... 3-4 florets
Green peas ... handful
Green beans ... 7-8
You may add even other vegetables of your choice.
Tomato puree ..... 1 cup ( 200 gms. pack )
Onion .............. 1 + 1
Lime ................ 1
Coriander ...... to garnish
Oil ................ 2 tbsps.
Butter ......... 3-4 tbsps.
Salt ............. to taste
Red chilli powder ... 1/4 tsp. ( or more )
Pav bhaji masala ...... 1 tbsp.
Tomato ketchup ... 1 tbsp.
Pav Bread

1. Wash and cut all the vegetables into very small pieces. Boil them adding salt. Strain and set aside.
2. Cut the onion finely.
3. In a pan heat the oil and saute the onion until pink in colour.
4. Now add the puree ( you may also use the home made puree from blanched tomatoes) and all the vegetables along with the spice powders. Stir well and keep mashing the veggies. Check the salt and add the tomato ketchup.
Spoon a little bit of butter on the hot bhaji.
5. Slice the pav bread, apply butter and toast it on a griddle.
6. Serve hot with the prepared bhaji and finely chopped onions and lime juice.
