Bombay Pav Bhagi

Pav पाव  Bhagi भाजी, Pav means bread and Bhagi means Vegetable so this is a dish of bread/buns served with vegetable cooked in a tangy tomato sauce. It is a famous Street food in India. It comes originally from Mumbai then Bombay but today it is famous all over India. Kids as well as adults love it. I remembering at our home it was made in the weekends and it was an all time favourite at birthday parties as well and it still is. Now this recipe of mine is inspired by an authentic Bombay Pav Bhagi which is made mostly with boiled potatoes, peas and tomatoes, but I have also added one red capsicum to it. 

When the girls were small and a bit fussy to eat the veggies then in my Bhagi other then peas and potatoes I also added broccoli, zucchini, cauliflower and whatever the seasonal vegetables were. The girls says they were robbed of the real taste of the dish, but whatever is healthy, right! Now-a-days I make both the kinds the authentic one and mine one

So here is what you will need: (for 4 People)

Paneer Korma

Paneer is The only Indian Cheese which has been used in the Indian kitchen for ever be it in a rich and creamy vegetable, be it Paneer kebabs, Paneer Bhurgi or even the most famous Rosogulla (Bengali Sweet)
I have never a big fan or Paneer while growing up but now I love it and the same happened with the girls too. M cant have enough of Paneer. It is very rich in Protein, tastes great and very easy to cook and even make at home from scratch.

Lemon Rice

Lemon Rice is a famous dish from the central India. It is mostly made with leftover rice from the previous day. This way you can pep up the rice and the dish comes out better with one day old rice. If you are going to make this dish with fresh rice then make sure you dont cook it too soft.

You can take any bread of your choice. Here is the Recipe from Rosy who comes from Tessin (South of Switzerland) and she showed us how to prepare the typical lecker Bruschetta.
