Pav Bhaji

Gone are those days where i used to hang out with my friends at "GANGOTRI"...blogger who stayed in chennai must be knowing that place.All kinds of snacks where available .My first choice would be pav bhaji ...Oh man !!!I tell you those guys make excellent ones .Too Good!!!!.Last nite i made pav bhaji at home .Quite similar .But a simple one how it goes

Raw Materials

1 Cup Aloo
1/2 Cup -Carrot
1/2 Cup- Shimla Mirch (Green Bell Pepper)
1/2 Cup Peas
1/2 Cup Onion
2 Riped Tomatoes
2 tspPav Bhaji Masala (MDH -bought from the store)
1tsp Jeera
1 Lime
Salt as per Taste
Pav From the store
Kotamali for garnish
Little Oil

Preparation style

Take a small cooker add little oil and after few seconds add jeera .Then add onion .Allow the onion to brown a bit and then add tomatoes.After the tomatoes leave it water add all the veg's to it .Then add salt and the pav bhaji masala .Now add sufficient water so that all the veg's submerge in it .Now close the cooker and let there by 4-5 whistles from it. After the cooker calms down open it and mash the bhaji with smasher .All the veg's will be perfectly cooked so well that it would be easily smashed.On the other side in the Tava add some ghee or butter and place the Pav's in them .Turn both the sides of the pav until they get a golden brown color.Squeeze lime in the bhaji and serve it hot with the pav ...Enjoy Karo Man
