How to make Cheesy Pav Bhaji Recipe
To begin making the Cheesy Pav Bhaji, heat butter in a pressure pan, add onions and saute until it turns translucent.
Add the ginger-garlic paste and saute until the raw smell goes away.
Add the finely chopped capsicum and saute until half done.
Now, add the tomatoes and cook until it turns soft.
Add the other vegetables, cubed potatoes, beans, carrots, cabbage and green peas and mix well.
Add the red chilli, coriander, pav bhaji masala, and 2 to 3 cups of water and mix well.
Season with salt, put the lid on for the cooker and pressure cook it for 3 whistles on medium flame.
Once the pressure is released, open the lid, and mash the vegetables with a potato masher to your desired consistency.
If you think it is too thick, place it back on the flame, add a cup of water and bring it to a rolling boil.
Just before serving, grate the cheese cubes over it while it is still hot.
"I am an experimental cook by chance!" Yeah! Cooking to me has always been a form of stress buster. What started as a stress busting exercise post work, has now evolved to a much full time activity. I try to improvise the traditional recipes with easy to available ingredients at home. Thus, you will come across a lot of fusion in my cooking style. I try to include seasonal organic produce as much as possible in my cooking.
