Paav Bhaji

"Family that eats together, stays together"

Paav Bhaji is one of my family's favourite recipe. This will usually become a complete meal for us. I usually prepare this for Sunday Dinner as all of us can sit together and relish it in peace. Now a days sitting and eating together is not really possible as some one should be there to tackle my 7 month old as she crawls at unbelievable speed towards anyone who has a plate in their hand :)

Here is my recipe for Paav Bhaaji

For the bhaaji:
Cauliflower - 1 cup chopped
Peas - 1/2 cup
Capsicum - 1/2 capsicum thinly sliced
carrot - 1 med sized one
Potato - 2 med sized
Onion - 1 cup finely chopped
Tomato - 1 1/2 cup finely chopped
Pav bhaaji masala - 1 1/2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tbsp (reduce if you do not like the bhaaji hot!)
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Oil
Salt

For the Pav:
Pav
Butter
Pav bhaji masala (optional)

For Garnish / Serving:
Coriander leaves chopped - 3 tbsp
lemon wedges
Onion rings

Method:
Cook / Steam cauliflower, capsicum, peas, carrot and potato.
Mash them using a potato masher and keep aside
Prepare the Ginger paste and keep aside
Heat oil in a pan, add onion and saute till the onion turns pink
Add ginger paste and saute for 2 - 3 mins
Add the tomato, turmeric, chilli powder, salt and paav bhaaji masala and saute till the masala starts leaving oil at the edge
Add 1 cup of water
Add the cooked and mashed veggies and mix well.
If you feel the bhaaji is too thick add a bit of water
Sim the flame and leave it for a few mins (10 mins should do)

This is how we had ours...




This is my entry for "Garnishing tips and techniques for Indian food" hosted by Food Fanatic. Till now I have not really spent much time thinking about garnishing. My MIL had some excellent ideas about how I should proceed :)
There is soo much material on this in google.. I was amazed.. it is quite an interesting topic :)
I also got this wonderful site which talks about simple easy garnish.


Hope I am not too late :)

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/jetlyca]q Buy Viagra Online[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://viagra.olistupa.ru]Viagra Super Active[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
