Pav Bhaji (Indian Curry) Recipe
This recipe shows you how to make a homemade version of pav bhaji, a well known Indian street food served with soft white bread rolls.
This is a very popular recipe in India, liked by almost everyone. You may have to go to a nearby Asian Indian store to get the 'Pav Bhaji Masala' that is the special spice to bring the flavor.

I made the recipe as posted and it needs some serious tweaking for next time. First it is very bland for the amount of vegetables in the ingredients. More chilis more masala. I would also exclude the cabbage or fry it earlier because it takes longer to cook. There needs to be a mix of oil and ghee(Indian butter)/butter and a cup of water. The kahzana spice packets from the Indian store work best from my experience.
iits a very delicious recipe.even though a bit hard to make the end result satisfied me.
I used a couple of tablespoons of butter instead of the oil, and just a couple of teaspoons of the masala. I'm glad I didn't use any more because it was pretty hot. My husband seemed to like it a lot, though. It's a great way to disguise leftover vegetables!
I skipped the cauliflower, carrots, and cabbage and added green pepper. I also substituted chili powder for the chopped chilis. I used any tomatoes I had around instead of the plum tomatoes. Hamburger buns worked well as the pav. This came out very well. I love the pav bhaji masala!
I made this exactly as written and really enjoyed it. It was my first time cooking with pav bhaji masala and I'm looking forward to making this again. I used my food processor to make quick work of grating the onion. Adding in the butter at the end really transforms the flavor. I'm not sure the small amount of corn was even worth opening up a can for - I might just leave it out next timed or add a bit more. Also, this makes small servings, so keep that in mind. I got the mild chile and pav bhaji masala from an international market.
