Pav Bhaji is the famous street food of Mumbai and a favorite of the Mumbaikars which had a very humble beginning – food vendors used to combine together all the vegetable dishes and some spices and serve it with bread to the busy factory and mill workers years ago.
In a kadai, heat the butter and oil together.
Add the garlic paste and saute for a minute.
Add the chopped onions and saute until it changes colour.
Next put in the tomatoes and stir and mash to soften it.
Add pav bhaji masala, chilli powder, salt.
To this add the peas and potatoes, mix and mash well.
Add approximately 1/2 to 3/4 cup water and cook on medium flame, mash continuously.
Let it simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from fire. Add coriander leaves and some more butter (optional).
Slit each pav, apply butter on both sides and toast on a girdle.
Serve the pav along with the bhaji, some chopped onions and lemon wedges.
