Pav bhaji recipe – The most popular Mumbai street food or fast food recipe. Mixed vegetables are cooked, mashed and spiced with special spice blend, served with soft, toasted buns.
This pav bhaji recipe is smooth and buttery just like the street stalls serves. For that I am using the butter at different stages while preparing the bhaji.
– First I am sauteing the onion-tomato in the butter.
– Secondly, once the bhaji is ready, I add a tablespoon of butter, let it melt. Again add tablespoon of butter and let it melt. I do this 3 times and it makes the huge difference in the texture and taste of the bhaji. Try it once, you will definitely see the good result.
All the taste and flavors in pav bhaji recipe depends on the masala that you use. Earlier I was using the Everest brand pav bhaji masala, it was good. But since past 6 months I am using the home made pav Baji masala I have tried Badshah brand masala as well. But I did not like it that much.
Also one more element that makes it perfect. It is the soft bun aka ladi pav.Always use the fresh pav. It should be lightly toasted with butter on tawa. This soft buttery pav served with bhaji gives the perfection.
It is known for a snack recipe. But it is rich and heavy with all the butter and potatoes in it. So I usually make it as a meal during the weekends. 😋😋
