Making Pav Bhaji at Home


Pav Bhaji is a Maharashtrian fast food dish served on Pav (bread),consisting of a thick vegetable curry served with a soft bread roll and garnished with coriander and chopped onions.

Pav is basically a small loaf of bread, introduced by the portuguese in India. Pavs are always made with maida or all purpose flour. We can make these small bread rolls with whole wheat flour or other flours at our home.

Pav Bhaji is basically a mix of mashed & spiced vegetables in a gravy, a special spice blend 'pav bhaji masala' is used to make pav bhaji.


PAV BHAJI

Pav Bhaji has many variations in ingredients and garnishes, but is essentially a spiced mixture of mashed vegetables in a thick gravy, usually cooked on a flat griddle (tava) and served hot with a soft white bread roll.

Let's prepare Pav Bhaji with these simple steps below


Ingredients:

STAGE 1 (VEGETABLE PREPARATION)
  • 1 kg frozen mixed vegetables
  • 3 potatoes, peeled and hopped into bite sized pieces
  • 750 ml water
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder

STAGE 2- (PAV BHAJI MASALA BLEND)

  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp dry mango powder (amchur powder)

STAGE 3 (MAKING THE BHAJI)

  • 150 g butter
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 4 red onions, pureed
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp pav bhaji masala blend
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 juice from lemon
  • 4 tbsp fresh corainder, chopped


STAGE 4 (BREAD ROLL PREPARATION)
  • 8 small bread rolls
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 tbsp fresh corainder, chopped
  • A pinch of Kashmiri chilli powder
  • 1 tsp pav bhaji masala blend


How To Make Pav Bhaji:


STAGE 1
  • Add all of the ingredients from stage 1 into a large pan and cook on a medium/high heat for 25 minutes.
  • Allow the vegetables to cool and then coarsely blend in a blender. 
STAGE 2
  • . Mix all of these together to create your very own pav bhaji masala. Alternatively, you can buy ready mixed masala in most Asian food stores

STAGE 3

  • Heat the butter and oil in a large pan, add the cumin seeds and cook on medium/high heat for 30 seconds, then add the onion purée, ginger and garlic paste and the salt. Cook for 10 minutes until the onion paste is translucent and starts to brown a little.
  • Add the pav bhaji masala and Kashmiri chilli powder and cook for 2 minutes on a low heat.
  • Add the tomato purée and mix well for two minutes on a medium heat.
  • Add a little water to deglaze the pan.
  • Add the blended vegetables and mix thoroughly. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the lemon juice and chopped coriander. 
 
STAGE 4
  • In a large frying pan melt the butter and add the chopped coriander, Kashmiri chilli powder and pav bhaji masala and mix well.
  • Slice the bread rolls in half and warm in the frying pan, liberally coating with the buttery masala.
  • Serve the bhaji with the bread rolls alongside some finely chopped red onions and lime wedge.
  • If there is any bhaji left over (you can live in hope) freeze it and save it for another day. I prefer to make a big batch and freeze as it's a labour intensive recipe.

Mendu Vada Recipe With Ingredients | How To Make Mendu Vada At Home

Leave a Comment
Medu vada is a South Indian fritter made from Vigna mungo (black lentil or urad dal). It is usually made in a doughnut shape, with a crispy exterior and soft interior. A popular food item in South Indian and Sri Lankan Tamil cuisines, it is generally eaten as a breakfast or a snack.

Medu vada is made of black lentils (urad dal) batter. The black lentils are soaked in water for several hrs, and then ground to a paste. The paste may be flavoured with other ingredients such as asafoetida, methi seeds (fenugreek), ginger, cumin seeds, black pepper, curry leaves, chillies and coconut pieces. It is then patted into doughnut-shapes and fried in oil until golden brown.

One variation involves baking instead of frying. Other variations of the dish involve use of pulses other than black lentils. For example, am-bada (or aama vadai) is made with chana dal (split chickpea lentil); occasionally, tuar (pigeon pea) and masoor (lentil) are also used.
