Paneer Pav Bhaji

We all love Pav Bhaji and I make it quite often, generally because there is too little of all the vegetables to be cooked individually or I am short of time.
Today I made Paneer Pav Bhaji it as I had to leave early and finish the few cubes of paneer left over in the fridge. Need I say more?
2 cup mixed vegetables like cauliflower, carrots, French beans
2-3 potatoes
3 onions
2 tomatoes
1 cup peas
1 capsicum, chopped fine
2 tblspn garlic paste
1 tblspn ginger paste
Pav bhaji masala
Red chilli powder
Salt to taste
Butter/oil for frying vegetables
Butter for frying the pav
Coriander, onions chopped fine and lime for garnishing
1.       Pressure cook the vegetables and potatoes for at least 2 whistles.
2.       Make big pieces of the onion and blend in the mixer. Keep aside.

3.       Do the same with the tomatoes and vegetables. Mash the potatoes.

4.       In a kadhai heat butter (I used butter for frying the onions in the past now I use oil) and add the ginger garlic pastes.

5.       When they are done add the onions and fry on low heat till the oil comes out.
6.       Add the tomatoes and cook till the oil comes out.
7.       Add the Pav bhaji masala and the chilli powder till you get a fragrance.
8.       Add the vegetables, mashed potatoes, peas, paneer and salt.

9.       Adjust the consistency of the gravy adding the water.

10.   When the bhaji starts to boil add the capsicum.
11.   Put off the flame. Garnish with coriander.
To Serve:
On a non stick tava heat a big blob of butter. Put the pav cut in half and soak the butter, quickly turn the pav over and let the other side cook a little. When this side is done cook the other side.
Serve with finely chopped onions, and lemon wedge.
