Author: Ruchita // Category: , ,

A spicy and quick dish and can be used as alternate to traditional Pav-Bhaji.

6 Piece of Pav (Bread rolls/buns)
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp Pav Bhaji masala
2 tbsp Olive oil
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
3-4 Cloves of Garlic
1 Cup Onion finely chopped
3/4 -1 Cup Capsicum finely chopped
1 Cup Tomatoes finely chopped
4-5 Long red chillies
Pinch of turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Black salt (sanchal)
2 tbsp tomato ketchup (optional)
Finely chopped coriander (for garnishing)

1) Boil the red chillies in a pan of water until they are tender. Drain the water and allow it to cool. Mix the red chillies with garlic cloves and blend into a smooth paste in a mixer. Keep aside. (You can remove the seeds optionally to make this less spicy)

2) Take the oil in a non stick pan and when little hot add the cumin seeds. Add the Onions and then add the ginger garlic paste. Saute for 2 mins.

3) Add the chopped capsicum and saute till tender.

4) Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, Pav bhaji masala and salt. Add little water around 1/4 glass to the mixture and let it cook while stirring at regular intervals.

5) Add half of the red chilli paste prepared in step 1 along with black salt and tomato ketchup(optional).Mix properly and cook for some time. Taste the masala mixture and if required you can add more red chilli paste and pav bhaji masala to make it more spicy. Keep aside.

6) Slit the Pav from center and apply butter on the insides and also on outside. Microwave on medium for 30 secs- 1 min depending upon the oven until the pav becomes soft. Take care not to overheat it else pav will become hard.

7) Take the pav and apply the prepared mixture on inside evenly. Close the pav and apply some mixture on top of the pav as well. Cut into 4 pieces and garnish with chopped coriander and serve with Lemon wedges and Onion rings as shown in pic below.
