Pav Bhaji with More Awards!!

Potatoes,(boiled,peeled and mashed)-1big
Boiled peas,carrots,cauliflower each- 1 cup
Onion-1,finely chopped
Tomatoes-4-5 big ripen ones
Capsicum-1,finely chopped
Gingergarlic paste-2tsp
Red chilli powder to taste(optional)
Tomato puree-1tbsp(for color and flavour)

To serve:
Chopped onions as required
Lemon wedges
Chopped fresh coriander
Pav bread  or any bread as required(i have used white baps)

Heat a butter/oil in a pan,add chopped onions fry until they are translucent.
Now add capsicum and ginger garlic paste saute until capsicum becomes little soft.
Add boiled vegetables, boiled potatoes, tomato puree,pav bhaji masala,chilli powder
and salt,close the lid and  cook on a low flame for 5minutes.
Add little water if necessary, with a masher mash the gravy gently,so that all the
veggies gets mashed up to form a smooth gravy.
At this stage you can add little dollop of butter which is totally optional.simmer for 2-3minutes.
Serve with chopped onions,coriander on top of bhaji,along toasted pav bread and lemon wedges.
Note:you can use butter for toasting pav breads as chaatwaala's does,but it doesn't make any diiference to taste without it.
For healthier option serve with wholemeal bread/brown bread,omit butter.
