This Pav Bhaji Recipe is my mom’s special recipe that she made for every new year’s eve dinner. My Mom made Pav Bhaji is my favorite dish that I can eat daily without getting bored.




Personally, I always prefer homemade pav bhaji than a restaurant or any food stall. Because they add artificial food color to give the bright orangish color of bhaji and also don’t use that much vegetables in bhaji. But at home, we can add any vegetables in the bhaji. Bhaji is basically a mix of mashed vegetables.recipe-of-bhaji

Notes:

  • For getting a bright orangish color, you can also use food color or red chilli paste in it but here I am using Kashmiri red chili powder.
  • You can add any vegetables in bhaji but, potato is the main because it gives thickness in bhaji. For more thickness, you can also add boiled Rajma and Chickpeas in bhaji.
  • You can also use butter in place of oil. But here I am using oil and garnishing Pav Bhaji with homemade white butter.
  • You should always toast pav on low flame.
