We, Indians, have a special fondness for street food. Everyone drools over a plate of the legendary chhole bhature from Delhi, or the delicious momos with their fiery red chutney and scrumptious pav bhaji from Mumbai! It is nearly impossible to resist the immediate urge to tuck into these mouth-watering, delectable treats. Don't you agree? If you're someone who's always looking for delicious street-style recipes to make at home, we have what you've been looking for. For making the much-loved pav bhaji, we offer you an easy-peasy recipe. Yes, you heard us correctly! We'll show you how to make pav bhaji in a pressure cooker in this article.
Pav bhaji is typically cooked in a big skillet. The steps of sautéing, mashing, and combining the vegetables take a bit more time. But making the bhaji in a pressure cooker is much simpler. All you have to do is pressure cook the vegetables together, add the masalas, mash, and you're done.

To start with, heat oil in a pressure cooker, add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Once done, add chopped capsicum, onion, and sauté for a few seconds. After it, add tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflower, peas, pav bhaji masala, salt to taste, and add 2 and a half cups of hot water.
Pressure cook until three whistles, use a potato masher to mash the bhaji, sprinkle some coriander leaves on the top and serve with butter and pav. Can anything be easier than this? We guess nothing!
