As Covid -19 strikes us, we all have to find ways to cope with stress and anxiety. I personally choose to keep myself informed but at the same time choose to channel my energy to cooking some delicious dishes for my family.  

Last night we all were craving for some Indian Street Food otherwise famously known as “Pav bhaji” or Vegetarian Sloppy Joes . The best thing about this dish is that you can throw in so many veggies in it yet this dish turns out to be delicious and well loved by my kids which is a rarity.

Here goes the recipe: 


Ginger- 1/2 an inch

Garlic- 6 cloves

Onion- 1 large

Tomatoes- 2 medium

Cayenne or Chilli powder- 2-3 tsp

Lemon- 1/2

Curry powder- 2 tsp

Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp

Salt to taste

Butter- 1/4 stick

Coconut oil

1/2 head of cauliflower

Peas-1/4 cup

Potatoes- 1



Firstly chop up cauliflower, potato, carrot and sweet peas in a pressure cooker or instant pot and cook all your veggies separately with salt. Next, take a pan, add some butter and throw in cumin seeds, ginger, garlic, onions, salt to taste and saute for 5 minutes till onions turn golden brown. Now add chopped tomatoes. Mix well with curry powder or garam masala as well as cayenne powder (depending on each family s spice level tolerance) and keep covered till it turns into a nice onion tomato paste. Now take the cooked veggies and transfer it to the onion tomato paste and mash it well till it turns creamy.

For garnish I chop up some cilantro, chopped onions and Serrano chilies.

You may serve with buns or bread.
