Whenever it happens that only a few vegetables are left in my refrigerator, I make paav bhaji with the leftover vegetables. Generally, vegetables like cauliflower, green peas, tomatoes, onions, and potatoes are used to make paav bhaji. I made with the same vegetables I mentioned and few more in details, please take a look.

Ingredients

1 cup cauliflower floret

1 cup cubed potatoes

1/2 cup green peas ( I used frozen peas)

6 to 8 beans

1 small size capsicum finely chopped

3 medium size tomatoes finely chopped

1 large onion finely chopped.

3 tsp lemon juice.

3 tsp ginger garlic paste

coriander to garnish

1 tbsp paav bhaji masala

2 tbsp butter ( you can use 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp butter also)

1 to 2 tsp red chili powder

1 bay leaf

4 to 5 black pepper.

Procedure

  • Cook potatoes, cauliflower, peas, beans in a pressure cooker in 1 whistle.
  • Heat Kadai and add butter followed by chopped onion.
  • Add salt and saute the onion till light to medium brown.
  • Add ginger garlic paste, black pepper, bay leaf, and tomatoes.
  • Cook till the mixture leaves oil.
  • Add pav bhaji masala and red chili powder and mix well.
  • Cook till aroma doubles
  • Add cooked vegetables and capsicum and let it cook covered for two to three minutes till it softs on low to medium flame.
  • Smash all the veggies with a masher.
  • cook well and add lemon juice at the end.
  • You can add water to the required consistency.
  • Garnish with coriander

NOTE:

  1. Do not throw or strain water of the cooked vegetables. Use it to cook paav bhaji.
  2. Put less amount of water to pressure cook. For this proportion, a 1/2 cup of water is good enough.
