Tips to make Best Pav Bajji Recipe:

1.Butter: The whole flavors revolve around butter, cooking the baji in butter gives you the most aromatic flavor.

2.Vegetables: Vegetables like capsicum, green peas, cauliflower, beetroot can be added. The predominant vegetable is the potato. If you do not have any vegetables, you can use the only potato to make pav bhaji.

3.Prep the mashed veggies:

You can prep the mashed veggies on the previous day and refrigerator to use on the next day. This actually saves your time when you have a large gathering.

4.Pav bhaji Masala: I used Everest Pav bhaji masala for this recipe, using a good quality pav bhaji masala to attain the real taste.

5.Mash it up: You need to mash up the veggies very well to get the right consistency. You can make the bhaji slightly thicker or thinner just by adding water.

6.Use homemade ginger garlic paste for more flavors.

7. Feel to free to add chili powder and pav bhaji masala according to your taste bud.
