Top tips

✔️Beetroot, or cauliflower for bhaji. Don’t use any veggies in large quantities as it may have an overpowering taste and you may not like the taste.

✔️Salt and other spices quantity can be increased or decreased according to your taste.

✔️Homemade pav bhaji masala can also be used.

✔️I have used salted butter in this recipe as it is easily available in India, if you’re using unsalted butter then increase the amount of salt. butter makes the pav bhaji tastier so add a good quantity of butter to make street-style pav bhaji.

✔️Mash the bhaji nicely with the potato masher for perfect consistency.

✔️Red food colour is optional, If you don’t want to add skip it.

✔️To make the pav bhaji vegan skip butter with oil, That’s it!

✔️If the bhaji becomes thick then add little water to get the desired consistency.

FAQs

What is pav bhaji called in English?


Pav is bread and bhaji is the flavourful and aromatic veggies mixture. I guess you can call it bread and spiced veggies.


How to boil green peas in the pressure cooker?


Green Peas
Wash the green peas and transfer them to a pressure cooker then add enough water so that the peas may sink in it. pressure cook it at high flame until it gets 1 whistle then turn off the flame and let the pressure release naturally. fresh green peas and frozen green peas both have the same process.

Potatoes
In the pressure cooker add potatoes, always use the same size potatoes as it may take equal time to cook, and add water in it so that it may drown in it. Cook it at high flame until it gets 2-3 whistles then lower the flame to simmer for 4 to 5 minutes and turn off the flame, let the pressure release naturally.

For medium size potatoes- 2 whistles
For large-size potatoes- 3 whistles.
