The main tip here is to mash it well in the tawa. After cooking the veggies, we transfer them to the tawa or a flat iron pan and cook them in butter while mashing further. The slow process of mashing while cooking will make the veggies get that creamy consistency.
And always remember to toast the pav lightly with the masala. It really gets a good crunch and flavor to the otherwise bland bread.
You can easily get pavs outside. But in sha ALLAH, I’ll share the recipe for the pav too in the future.
I have added peas, carrot and beans in this recipe, but you can add whatever veggies you like including capsicum, cabbage etc.
