Pav bhaji | Indian Street Food

pav bhaji

Pav bhaji with step by step pictures.

This is one recipe I learnt after coming to this blogging world. On seeing fellow bloggers making mouth-watering pav bhaji I got remembered of this when I first tasted it in Mumbai some 20 years back. Now I tried my own version of cooking the vegetables in a pressure cooker and mashing it. THen adding it to the sauteed onion tomato masala along with spices and thickening it. The Everest pav bhaji masala does the magic in this recipe. Sometimes I make this with leftover veggies along with some legumes to make it nutritious. Here I have black-eyed peas.

Let us see how to make my version of it.
