One of the things I like about Mumbai is the mouth watering street food that you get, especially the chaats available in every street corner. I like Tava Pulav a lot and I like it because of the crunchiness of the vegetables and the taste of pav bhaji -which add a distinct flavor to the rice. When I was in Mumbai I relished this dish.If you are bored with same old pulav do make this, they are absolute delight for summer picnics. Here comes the recipe .
- 1 cup rice cooked
- 1 big onion
- 2 big tomatoes
- ½ cup tomato ketchup
- 1 Medium potato, peeled, cubed and boiled
- 1 ½ tbsp pav bhaji masala
- 1 tsp chilli powder
- ½ tsp turmeric powder
- ½ cup boiled peas
- 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 2 tbsp Oil
Heat a tsp of oil. Add cumin seeds, ginger garlic paste, onions and cook till the onions become translucent.
Add the tomatoes and peas. Stir for a minute and cook until tomatoes become soft.
Add the potato and stir for a minute or so.
Add the ketchup, Pav bhaji masala, turmeric, and chilli powder.
Add the rice and salt and combine it such that there are no lumps. The tomato mixture/gravy should be evenly distributed.
Garnish with coriander leaves .
Serve hot with raita chutneys or dips.
