Bread/Paratha

Bhaji Paratha

bhaji paratha

 

Mumbai (also known as “Bombay”) a city that never sleeps, a home to millions of street vendors and a city where the best dishes are found on the city streets. Some of the most famous street foods are pav bhaji (spicy mashed vegetables with toasted/buttery buns), vada pav (just like a veggie burger excluded the cheese/veggies),bhel puri, pani puri and gola. Many of the dishes found on the streets are sweet, sour or really spicy a balance of the perfect taste. Majority of the street food is also vegetarian. I have to admit on my second visit to India, when I saw the street food and the way it was being made I was very skeptical on eating the food. I was always thinking “what if” this happens or “what if that” but finally I couldn’t resist and caved in and indulged into this awesome street food.  What an experience ? Loved it !

I know the sound of Bhaji …may not excite you right away to make this recipe, but trust me if your anything like me and love pav bhaji then your going to love this. The tangy taste of tomatoes/onions and garlic sautéed in dollops of butter, masala, fresh coriander leaves and lots of mashed vegetables is close to impossible to avoid. I’ve also heard that now a days the bhaji sold in restaurants come in many different varieties like Cheese Pav Bhaji, Paneer Pav Bhaji, Khada Pav Bhaji.

 

 

 

Well, this recipe came to me when I realized that I didn’t have any pav (buns), but had all the vegetables to make the bhaji. So, that’s when I thought of the Bhaji Paratha and this was a great way to get all the flavors of bhaji into the paratha. These parathas can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner and also a great lunch box tiffin idea. If you have kids that are picky eaters then this would absolutely be a great idea.
