Easy Pav Bhaji

Pav is bread and bhaji is curry Pav Bhaji is well known as street food (fast food) is loved by all.
Lets see how to make quick and easy bhaji  and have quicker Pavi Bhaji which can be enjoyed with minimum time.

All you need to buns(Pav) and some vegetables to cook. Here I have used carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. Some Pav bhaji masala to add to the baaji.

Ingredients for Baaji

Carrot : 2 to 3
Peas (I have used frozen ) : 1 Bowl.
Potatoes : 2 ( Medium sized)
Tomato: 2
Onion : 1 (Big)
Salt to taste
Ginger : Small piece
Coriander leaves : 4 to 5 sticks
Pav baaji Masaala powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Garam Masala : 1/2 Teaspoon
Jeera powder : 1 Teapoon
Butter : 2 to 3 Table spoon
Oil : 1 Table spoon
Pav (Bread) : Required

Method : Masala (Bhaji)

1. Wash carrots, potatoes, ginger, remove the outer layer and grate it . Keep it aside.
2. Cut coriander leaves, tomatoes and onions into small.

3. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add 1 Tablespoon of oil and put 1/2 teaspoon of jeera.
4. Add tomatoes, grated ginger and fry nicely. Add carrots, peas and potatoes and fry till they turn soft.
5. Add salt, little turmeric powder, garam masala powder, pav bhaji masala powder and fry nicely.
6. Let it cook nicely till every thing mixes well. Add butter to it and shift the bhaji to a serving dish.

7. Add little coriander leaves to it. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the bhaji. Mix it nicely.

8. Cut buns in the middle. Keep a tava (dosa pan) on the fire.
9. Heat and Keep cut buns and let it roast. Apply little ghee on both side and roast it.

10. Keep the roasted buns, a spoonful of bhaji and little onion on it and serve.

11. You can also serve cucumber raitha (pachadi) or a cup of curd along with Pav Bhaji.

12. You can toast bread and serve with Pav bhaji instead of buns.


You can cook all the vegetables instead of grating them. Adding Spice according to your taste is optional. Adding butter is also optional. I have used MTR brand powders. You can use any brand of spice of your choice. You can use butter to roast buns instead of ghee. Bhaji can be used as curry for chapati, roti, poori and dosas.
Total Time : 30 minutes
Serves : 2 to 3
