PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Pav Bhaji is a thick vegetable curry that originated in Mumbai as a quick lunchtime dish for textile mill workers. It’s now a popular Indian street food. It consists of mashed vegetables that are spiced and cooked in a thick gravy, usually in a flat griddle.
To make your own authentic Pav Bhaji, you’ll need to:
- Peel, dice and boil some potatoes. Then chop and boil some carrots, cauliflower, peas, and green peppers. Set aside.
- In a deep frying pan, sauté your finely chopped onions with butter.
- Add your chopped tomatoes, some salt, and the MDH Pav Bhaji masala.
- Put in the boiled vegetables into the pan, plus a half cup of water.
- On high heat, mix and mash your Pav Bhaji for about ten minutes, until curry-like.
- Serve with freshly toasted bread rolls smeared with butter.
A SPICE EMPIRE
Mahashian Di Hatti, or MDH Spices, is the second largest leader in the Indian spice market, producing and selling ready-to-use spice blends.

Keep your spices tightly covered and store them in a cool, dry place. Whole spices stay fresh for up to 2 years while ground spices have a 6-month shelf life. Pro tip: red spices such as paprika and red pepper can be stored in the refrigerator to hold their color and keep their flavor longer. Keep away from sunlight and heat.
