Tava pulav

One more recipe from Mumbai street is "Tava Pulav". It's not a regular pulav. Vegetables used are same as in Pav bhaji and the wonderful thing is, pav bhaji masala is added for flavor. It is called as Tava Pulav because Haath gadi wala bhaiyya prepares this pulav on same tava of pav bhaji. With all these vegetables, he also adds some ready bhaji into it. In our college days pav bhaji and Tava pulav with raita was our favorite dinner. So you must try this pulav, I assure you it tastes awesome……...


Cooked Basmati rice - 1 big bowl.
Potato -1 (peeled and cut in cubes)
Cauliflower florets - 1/2 cup
Capsicum - 1 (cut in cubes)
Carrot - 1 small (cut in cubes)
Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
Tomatoes - 1 (finely chopped)
Green peas - 1/2 cup
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 teaspoon
Pav bhaji masala - 2 teaspoon
Red chili powder -1 teaspoon
Amul butter - 3 table spoon
Chopped onion and coriander - 1/2 cup
Lemon wedges - 4
Salt to taste


Take a big tava (or a fry pan). Heat the tava and add butter in it. When the butter melts add ginger garlic paste and saute it for few seconds. Add chopped onion and saute it till it gets transparent. Add tomatoes , saute it till it leaves oil. Now add all the remaining vegetables, salt, red chili powder and pav bhaji masala and mix well. Add little water, cover it and let all the vegetables get cooked. Don't over cook it. Now add cooked rice, 1teaspoon of butter and if needed, add salt. Mix very gently . Saute it for a minute . Our pav bhaji wala used to add 1-2 table spoon of pav bhaji's ready bhaji at this time to give the authentic taste. This time my bhaji was ready, so I added 2 table spoon of ready bhaji into it. Mix well. Serve hot pulav with lemon wedges, chopped onion and coriander and Raita.
