For preparing the "bhaaji" or vegetable, boil potatoes and coarsely mash them. Boil all the other chopped vegetables till fully cooked, drain and keep aside. Mash the boiled vegetables to form a coarse pulp.
In a pan, melt 2 tbsps of butter. Add cumin seeds, garlic and ginger paste and chopped onions. Cook till the onions are light golden brown. Add the pav bhaaji masala and chili powder. Stir till the spices start to give out a wonderful aroma.
Add the tomato puree. Add 4 more tbsps of butter. Sautï¿½ till the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. Now add the boiled vegetables and coarsely mashed potatoes and cook for 5 to 7 minutes.
Cook till the mixture gets little thick and the mixture again starts to leave the sides of the pan.
Add more butter if needed. Season with salt. Mix well. Garnish with the chopped coriander leaves.
To prepare the "pav" or dinner rolls, slit the buns into two keeping the base intact. On a flat frying pan, melt some butter. Arrange all the buns on the pan. Roast both the sides as well as the inner surfaces of buns on the butter.
Serve the "pav" or rolls with the bhaji. Garnish with chopped onions and a dash of lemon juice. To eat break off pieces of the bread and scoop up a little bit of the vegetable and enjoy.
Combination of taste and nutrition, you get both :) Enjoy!!!
