MUMBAI PAV BHAJI and MEXICAN DINNER

To be frank this was my first try on Pav bhaji, it has come out very delicious, we both enjoyed it alot.I had in my mind past 2 years, that was from before my wedding, i should try this once for sure....atlast i did it now in U.S

INGREDIENTS:
Potatoes - 2 big
Carrot - 2 or 1
Beans - 10
Cauliflower - 10-15 florets
Peas - 1 cup
Pav Bhaji Masala(i used MDH company)
Red Onion- 2
Tomato-3-4
Butter- 2tsp
Salt - as per taste

GARNISHING:
Onion - few
Corriander leaves


METHOD:

Boil all the vegetables ,fry onion in butter and add coarsely chopped tomotoes ,Pav Bhaji Masala and salt.

Now transfer the Boiled vegetables and on high flame, mix and mash well for about 10-15minutes.Allow it to cook well and serve hot with butter roasted Pav..

Don't forget to garnish with chopped onion,lime juice few drops, corriander leaves before serving..

Do you feel it easy?Yep!!!you are correct, it didn't take much time apart from chopping vegetables....

As masala contains all the major spices needed for the recipes i didn't add any more.




MEXICAN DINNER


One day evening i felt lets do something different from our usual and routine menu..

I prepared Glucomole, bean paste, veg.salad.Already had flour tortillas in my pantry...While my hubby sat for dinner i displayed these items, he was totally happy as he didn't expect this menu...it was change from our rice, sambar, rasam,veg.curry etc.....

I like to share the recipe with all my dear bloggers..

Hi Usha...both the Pav-bhaji and Mexican items look good! those buns have been toasted to perfection..MDH and Everest brand are both good...! The right masala powder makes so much a difference.
