    Recipe Introduction

    From Petrina Verma Sarkar

    List of Ingredients

    * 4 large potatoes boiled, peeled and cut into small cubes
    * 2 medium or 1 large carrot grated finely
    * 1 cup boiled green peas
    * 1 cup caulilower florets boiled till almost tender
    * 1 large green bell pepper/ capsicum cut into very tiny pieces
    * 2 large tomatoes chopped fine
    * 4 large onions chopped very fine
    * 3 tbsps garlic chopped very fine
    * 6-8 tbsps ghee (or favourite oil)
    * 2 tbsps Paav Bhaaji Masala (recipe posted separately)
    * Salt to taste
    * 1 lime (or lemon) cut into wedges
    * Fresh chopped corainder leaves to garnish (optional)
    * 8 small GF buns


    * Heat a large, wide,heavy-bottomed pan on a medium flame. Add 3 tbsps of ghee and allow to melt.

    * Add the onions and fry till translucent. Add the all the other veggies and garlic. Mix well and sprinkle the Paav Bhaaji masala over the veggies. Add salt to taste. Cook till the capsicum is tender and then begin to mash with the back of a slotted spoon. Mash to a course texture. Add a tablespoon of ghee, mix and cook for a few more minutes. Turn off the fire.

    * Heat a griddle on a medium flame till hot. While it is heating, slit the Paavs/ buns in half horizontally and butter heavily. Place the buns open and face down on the pan. Press down on them with a spatula and cook till golden and crisp. Flip and repeat on other side.

    * Serve the Paavs with piping hot Bhaaji, garnished with finely chopped onion and lime or lemon wedges.

    Note from BL: Finding good buns was the hard part. The children didn't mind using EnerG tapioca buns, but I can't have them. The filling works well in a taco or a GF wrap though.
