Pav Bhaji

Pav Bhaji is another simple recipe. I am trying to make it more simple for the bachelor section.

Ingredients:
4 Potatoes
1 cup tomato puree
1/3 cup Green peas(optional)
1 1/2 tbsp Everest Pav bhaji masala
1/2 tbsp red chilli powder( or as per taste)
Salt for taste
4 tbsp Butter
Cilantro/Corriander for garnish

4-6 Pav or buns

Finely chopped onions and one lemon cut into quarter for serving


Directions:
Peel and dice the potatoes. In a pan add 2 cups of water and add the potatoes and boil.
Diced potatoes will cook fast and cooking in pan will save the cleaning effort of an extra vessel used for boiling potatoes :)

When potatoes are tender, mash them with a masher. Add tomato puree and rest of the ingredients. Add little water if required. Keep stiring till the nice familiar pav bhaji aroma starts spreading. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.

In another pan heat pav or buns with liberal amount of butter till light brown on both sides.

Serve bhaji and pav with finely chopped onions and lemon pieces. Put some more butter on bhaji while serving.
