For the Pav (Buns)

  • 8 pav (soft dinner rolls)

For the Bhaji

  1. Heat oil in a large pan or kadai over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent.

  2. Add the ginger-garlic paste and sauté for a minute until the raw aroma disappears.

  4. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and cook until they become soft and pulpy.

  6. Add the boiled and mashed mixed vegetables to the pan. Mash them and mix with the masala.

  7. Pour in the water and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the bhaji thickens and the flavors meld together.

  9. Garnish the bhaji with fresh coriander leaves.

For the Pav
