Lockdown Cooking | Masala Pav

When it comes to street style food, all we crave is fried fritters or items topped with tons of cheese! masala pav is also street-style food, but with a little twist – it has junk but has an equal amount of healthy options as well. 

Bombay style masala pav tastes similar to pav bhaji and can be included as a part of the daily diet, by making minor changes to the ingredients [ making with 0 butter and adding lots of veggies, and of course, reducing the count of bread slices ].

Masala pav can be consumed as a breakfast or as a snack, and can also be eaten as a main course! the choice is yours 🙂

What did I use?

  • Bread slices/pav – 4 to 6
  • Butter – 2 tablespoon
  • Salt – as required
  • Finely chopped ginger – 1/2 tablespoon
  • Finely chopped garlic – 1 1/2 tablespoon
  • Red chili powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Finely chopped green chili – 1/2 [ can be used as per requirement. Can also be skipped ]
  • Chopped capsicum – 1 
  • Chopped tomato – 1
  • Chopped onions – 1
  • Finely chopped coriander leaves – 1 tablespoon
  • Pav bhaji masala – 1 tablespoon
  • Water – 50 ml [ to be added only if required]

How did I make it?

  • I took a pan and added butter to it. I waited for the butter to melt and then added onions and capsicum to it and gave it a mix. I allowed it to cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, on a medium flame.
  • While I was enjoying the amazing smell of butter, onions, and capsicum, I started cutting the bread into cubes.
  • Once my vegetables were cooked, I added tomatoes, salt, red chili powder, green chili, ginger, garlic, and pav bhaji masala. I lowered the flame and allowed my tomatoes to get cooked. 
  • My mixture is now completely ready! my next step is to mix bread cubes into the mixture. i turned off the flame and mixed bread with the mixture. Once mixed, I turned on the gas on a low flame and added coriander leaves and gave it a final mix.
  • Note: If pav becomes hard, water can be added to the pav. But make sure that you do not add too much of water, else the pav will become sticky.
  • Masala pav is ready! ❤️
