Spiced mashed mixed vegetables cooked on a griddle and served with pav lightly toasted in butter, chopped onions and lemon wedges.
My love affair with pav bhajee or pav bhaji started several years ago, when I ate it at one of the stalls at Mumbai’s iconic Juhu beach. It is one of the most popular Mumbai style street foods which can now be found across metro cities in India even in high end restaurants. A delicious and wholesome mix of assorted veggies like potatoes, tomatoes, cauliflower, green peas and capsicum along with plenty of onions, ginger and garlic are mashed on a griddle and flavoured with a quintessential spice mix known as pav bhaji masala. This spicy vegetarian sabzi is served with a baked Indian bread roll called pav which is toasted along with a good dose of butter. This vegetarian Indian classic is an all-day hit – works great as a meal and even as a snack. It’s one of the best ways to feed your kids plenty of veggies that too with a smile.
