Homemade Pav Bhaji Masala Powder

Homemade Pav Bhaji Masala Powder

I am already feeling the weekend today itself as mittu has a holiday 2mrw. Weekdays are always busy these days and I utilise the interval between the time she starts school and reaches home. Though now I've the liberty of cooking and clicking leisurely, I miss her presence so much . I make myself fully occupied when she is not around so that I dont feel the loneliness.

After I tried homemade garam masala powder, I was very much happy with the flavour which is no way compared to the store bought ones. I made this pav bhaji masala powder mainly to try Tawa pulao as I saw it in many spaces that I got tempted very badly and to the add on my sis also asked to post it. I've already tried Pav Bhaji with the homemade powder a day back and should say it took pav bhaji to a whole new level.

My Notes:

  • If you are not making pav bhaji often, no worries this is a multipurpose powder which can even be used as curry powder or to spice up any other Indian style curries / gravies.
  • If you dont hav black cardamoms just try it it normal green ones. But black cardamoms have a more strong flavour.
  • This keeps well for 1 month or even more if refrigerated.

  13. @Nimisha : I just followed the orginal recipe and it had no cloves....so not sure whether that makes any difference...may be try adding 1 or 2 cloves and see.
