A one-pot easy recipe for the most popular Indian street food, Pav Bhaji in Instant Pot. It is a spiced mashed vegetable curry topped with chopped onions, cilantro, lemon and enjoyed with dinner rolls.
Pav Bhaji Masala:
- The real Mumbai pav bhaji is always made with butter. However you can prepare it will oil too.
- I recommend using Kashmiri chili, as that enhances the color of the bhaji. If you don't have it, use another whole chili or red chili/cayenne powder.
My preferred pav bhaji masala brand is Everest. If you want to make a quick homemade pav bhaji masala powder, here is the recipe - 1 tsp coriander powder + 1 tsp garam masala + 1 tsp dry mango powder (or lemon juice) + 1/2 tsp turmeric powder Vegan Variation:
Use vegan butter or oil to make the bhaji and toast the pav. Doubling the recipe:
