Pav Bhaji

Ingredients (Translation)

A packet of pav
1/4 kg boiled potatoes
2 tsp tomato puree
1/2 capsicum
2 tsp oil
3 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp pav bhaji masala powder
Salt to taste
Finely chopped coriander leaves to garnish
Butter to toast the pav

Heat oil, add cumin seeds. (I have not used onions, if you would like to - you should add it at this stage and saute till it turns pinkish in colour). Add the tomato paste, ginger paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, pav bhaji masala powder, salt and 1/4 cup water. Allow it to cook for five minutes.

Add finely chopped capsicum and mashed potatoes. Cook for two minutes, add butter and cook for another three minutes. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Toast the pav on both sides using butter as per taste.

Serve pav and bhaji with a piece of lemon and finely chopped onions (optional).
