Tawa Pulav - Mumbai's Street Food

Posted by Lakshman Brahma on 31/12/2016 

1 ½ cups rice (cooked). I used sona mansuri, but Basmati will be good.
¾ tsp cumin (jeera)
1 big onion chopped or sliced thinly
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 carrot chopped small
1/4 cup green peas (mashed or as it is)
1/2 cup Tomato sauce ( instead use 2tomato chopped small )
1 small capsicum cubed
1/2 cup beans cut
1 tsp red chili powder
1 1/2 tsp pav bhaji masala
Salt to taste
3 tbsp butter / oil
3 to 4 tbsp. water
Coriander leaves for garnishing

How to make the recipe :  Heat butter/oil in a pan, add cumin and sauté till they begin to crackle.  Add onions, fry them till transparent.  Add ginger garlic paste, fry till u get an aroma.  Add tomato sauce and salt. (If using tomato fry till tomatoes are mushy).  Add the vegetables, red chili powder and pav bhaji masala powder, mix well.  Pour 3 to 4 tbsp. Water just enough to cook the vegetables. Cook till the beans and the carrot are cooked. Add the cooked rice and mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve tawa pulao.  Do not add too much water to the masala while cooking. It can make the rice soggy and sticky.
