I think this week it's gonna be like series of comfort food.
The other day I made this, my all time favorite PavBhaji.
Here is the recipe:
4 potatoes boiled and mashed
1 cup tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup green peas boiled
1/2 cup green beans chopped boiled
1/2 cup carrots chopped boiled
1/2 cup cauliflower florets boiled
1/2 cup green pepper chopped
1 big onion chopped
2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp haldi
2 tsp pavbhaji masala
1/4 cup oil or butter
salt to taste
You can boil all the vegetables together or you can boil potatoes separately and then boil the other vegetables together.
Heat the oil or butter in a pot or a broad pan and saute the onions. Once they are golden brown, add the ginger-garlic paste and fry for about a minute or two. Then add the chili powder and fry for 1/2 minute. Add the tomatoes and fry till the oil floats on top. Add the chopped green pepper
and haldi. Fry for sometime. Now add the boiled vegetables and fry the bhaji for about 5 minutes and add the pavbhaji masala and salt and stir so that the masala blends with the bhaji.
Cover and simmer the bhaji for 10 minutes on low flame. Adjust the seasonings according to your taste.
Serve with chopped onions, pav ( I used hambuger buns ) and lemon wedges.
