Pav Bhaji

Pav Bhaji is one of the most popular Indian street/fast food. This dish is often eaten as a light evening meal, and is also a party favorite. This spicy and mouth watering dish is a spiced mixture of vegetables and mashed potatoes. Here's sharing the best Pav Bhaji recipe that I have ever tried and loved and one of my mother-in-law's favorite. So lets start to cook with "Flavors of Sneha's Kitchen".


Pav Bhaji
4-5 boiled potatoes, grated/mashed
1/2 cup of boiled & mashed green peas
1/2 cup of boiled & mashed cauliflower
1 large onion finely chopped
1 cup of tomato puree
1 medium green capsicum finely chopped
1 tbsp of garlic paste
2 tbsp of pav bhaji masala and 1 tbsp of red chilli powder soaked in little water for an hour
Salt to taste
2 tbsp of butter
1 tbsp of oil
Water as required


  • Heat butter and oil in a pan.
  • Add chopped onion and fry until translucent.
  • Add garlic paste and cook until the raw taste of garlic is gone.
  • Add the chopped capsicum and fry it for a minute.
  • Add the soaked pav bhaji masala and stir till spices are well cooked.
  • Add the mashed potatoes, peas, cauliflower and give a good mix.
  • Add the tomato puree, salt and mix well.
  • Add little water to get the desired consistency.
  • Now cook for 5-10 minutes and make sure to mix it well on a regular interval so it doesn't get stuck at the bottom.
  • Finally, add chopped coriander leaves and mix.
  • Toast the pav in butter.
  • Serve with chopped onion and lemon wedge.

Note: To make your Bhaji little healthier, you can also add boiled and mashed carrot, cabbage and french beans.
