The Irresistible Pav Bhaji
An iconic dish from Mumbai, and unpretentiously rooted in Indian culinary tradition, Pav Bhaji is now one of the most popular street foods around the world.
One of the most wholesome dishes with a whole load of vegetables, Pav Bhaji makes for a perfect snack in between meals.
Bhaji has many variations in ingredients and garnishes, and is usually cooked on a flat griddle and served with hot pavs.
Pavs’ are nothing but breads or dinner rolls which are simply split, buttered and toasted and served on the side of the “Bhaji”, which itself is garnished with chopped onion, coriander and yet another spoonful of fresh butter.
Essentially a ‘Bhaji’ is a simple vegetable dish in the local dialect, but in this guise the Bhaji is a dish cooked with boiled potatoes, mashed and fried in butter, with chopped onions, peppers and tomatoes plus the addition of peas, cauliflower and a spicy red masala.
Rich, Spicy and Delicious!
