With a little extra time spent at home of late, we’ve naturally been gravitating towards the kitchen. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of our favourite recipes starting with Pau Bhaji!
A classic Indian street food recipe, Pau Bhaji is a great, versatile meal that can be easily adapted to what you have in the fridge at the time. The curry is a mix of basically any vegetables and spices you have available, which is traditionally eaten with a toasted, buttered bun, but can paired with any type of bread or rice. Here is a basic recipe that can be changed up for any personal preferences.
Melt the 100g butter in a large, heavy-based pan. Add the onions and salt and sauté until slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Next add the garlic and sauté briefly. Then, add in the passata, cauliflower, cooked potatoes, and sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, all the spices and water. Give everything a good stir and cover with a lid. Cook over a medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
Once everything has been fully cooked, take the pan off the heat and grab a potato masher. Mash all the veg until smooth with a few bits of chunky veg left. Add some salt to season and lemon juice, then return to heat to cook through.
Prepared some buttered buns which can either be toasted on a pan or in a toaster and then buttered. Serve with chopped onions and chillies if you want some more spice. Enjoy!
