One of the best street foods that is an all-time favourite is the pav baaji. The magic of Bombay's famous street food was microwave cooked in my kitchen and I'm sharing it with you.
100 grams carrots chopped
100 grams cauliflower chopped
100 grams bottle gourd chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
1/4 cup green peas
50 grams french beans chopped
50 grams cabbage chopped
2 potatoes peeled and chopped
1/4 cup grated onion
1/4 cup pureed tomato ( I cooked tomatoes in microwave and pureed them)
3 tablespoons ghee/oil
2 teaspoons pav baaji masala powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
Salt to taste
!/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
4 pav buns
Onion rings/ chopped onions
Fresh coriander leaves.
Wash the chopped vegetables.Place them in a microwave safe bowl, sprinkle some water.
Cook covered on 100% micropower, for 8 minutes until all vegetables are soft and mashable.
Allow to stand for 4 more minutes. Open and with a masher, mash the vegetables well.
In a different bowl, heat oil/ghee on 100% power for 30 seconds. Add the grated onion and cook open on 100% power for 3 minutes. Add the tomato puree, mix well and microwave on 100% power for further 3 minutes.
Add all spices and salt and the mashed vegetables to the above and cover. Cook on 60% power for 5 minutes. Stand for 2 minutes.
Take it out and mix well. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
When ready to serve, toast the buns adding butter and serve with the baaji.
Serving suggestions are that serve them with onion rings and quartered lemons.I am sending tis to Microwave Potluck party September edition hosted by Srivalli @ cooking4all seasons.
