Many of you have asked how to prepare perfect Pav Bhajis. Here is how I make it. Use whatever vegetables you have in your refrigerator.


8 nos. Dinner Rolls
1 no. Tomato(chopped)
3 nos. Onion(chopped)
1 no. Bell pepper(chopped)
1 cup Potato(chopped)
1 cup Vegetables(cauliflower, carrots etc., chopped)
½ cup Peas
2 tsps. Spice Mix for Pav Bhaji
1 tsp Chili(powder)
¼ tsp Turmeric(powder)
½ tsp Ginger(grated)
½ tsp Garlic(crushed)
½ no. Lemon
pinch Cilantro(to garnish)
Salt to taste
pinch Vegetable Oil(to shallow fry)


Set aside 1 chopped onion for garnishing. Cook mixed vegetables, potatoes and peas in a pressure cooker. Don't add too much water while cooking. After the vegetables are done, drain and mash them coarsely. Heat butter (or oil) in a pan and fry onion and ginger/garlic. When onions turn translucent, add bell peppers and tomatoes. Continue frying till it turns soft. Now add Pav Bhaji Masala, chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and fry for another couple of minutes. Now you can add the mashed vegetables. Turn up the heat and continue stirring till everything is well incorporated. Take off the stove when the bhaji is thick. Cut Pavs in half horizontally and lightly coat it with butter. Roast them on hot griddle just before serving. Garnish Bhaji with chopped coriander leaves, chopped onions and a thin wedge of lemon.

I liked the way of adding capsicum(bell pepper),as otherwise i used to put the whole pepper into the p.cooker and then peel it off which i felt a bit difficult and messy too....rest of the recipe is just as mine....very nice

when u r making pav bhaji mix small amount of soya chunks into the bhaji , it make your bhaji more nutritious. i always make this way.

You can add any vegetable except veggies that are sour (example Karela, Methi leaves etc).... to make it healthy add pumpkin and spinach ( that kids avoid)
