5.Once you have prepared this Paste then you have to make the pav bhaji on a skillet, and I always make my pav bhaji on a skillet completely street style, now I know a lot of people will not have a large skillet, so for this type of pav bhaji there is no need to worry you can make it in a cooking pot or a wok as you don’t need to do any mashing here, if you have to do the mashing then I always tell you that you should have a flat bottom vessel, so that you can easily Mash it,

6. So there is a no need for mashing here so you can cook it in any vessel, try to find an open vessel like a skillet or a large fry Pan and cook in that, so that you get better result the cooking process on a skillet is slightly different, and if you have that then do so if not then no need to worry, now let’s learn what is the another process,


How To Coock Khada Pav Bhaji

9. While mixing it well I have added the green chillies as the Kashmiri Red chillies don’t have much heat so the spiceness will come from green chillies, now cook it for 2 minutes while stirring we don’t need to make the vegetables into a mush, then to this we will add half of the quantity of the paste that we made of red chilli and garlic,

10. After adding the paste stir everything well to mix all the ingredients with the paste, and cook it just for 2 minutes here after cooking for 2 minutes we will add hot water to it I have added about 300 ml of water and adjust the consistency the consistency should be somewhat thicky, after adding the water you have to cook the vegetables for 10 minutes while stirring,



11. Remamber don’t mash at all otherwise it will become normal pav bhaji, and the texture of vegetable should be chanki only than our khada pav bhaji will be perfect, so cook these vegetables for 4 to 5 minute while stirring, this will cook properly and thicken a little and our chilli paste will also cook properly, and the khada pav bhaji will be perfect, after 4 to 5 minutes,

12. you will see how it’s consistency is it is a perfect consistency, now here I am adding butter as per the requirement, after adding the butter at lots of freshly chopped green coriander leaves, and we will add juice of lemon, after adding all these ingredients stir it once, after stirring it taste it once for salt and spice and adjust as per your taste, and our khada pav bhaji is ready,
