Pav Bhaji


We are blessed to have some lovely Indian friends here they really enjoy introducing us to North Indian street food. One of these dishes was Pav Bhaji its a simple Vegetable curry that is eaten with a warm buttered bread roll. Its great to make a big pot of this and have as a fun alternative to sandwiches for lunch.

This dish also reminds me of my sweet sister in law as its a favorite of hers love the power food has to connect us all. 

Ingredients:

  • one cauliflower chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic 
  • a little freshly minced ginger
  • 1/2 a red onion chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 cup of frozen peas
  • 3 small potatoes chopped
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • one tablespoon of tomato puree
  • one teaspoon of pav bhaji curry mix from the Indian store, or a basic masala powder
  • salt to taste
  • bread rolls to serve it with, its good with or without butter 
  • a pinch of mustard seeds 

Method:

  1. Add the vegetables to a pan with about 2 -3 cups of water enough to cover the vegetables and bring to a boil, allow to boil for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are soft and mash
  2. meanwhile heat a little oil pop the mustard seeds, add the fresh ginger and garlic and saute with the onion for 5-7 minutes 
  3. then add the tomatoes and slowly cook down into a paste for about 10 minutes add the curry powder and mix with the vegetables, simmer for about 10 minutes 
  4. you may beed to add a little more water to get a sauce and blend in the tomato puree and salt as desired 
  5. enjoy with toasted bread :)
