Tawa Rice has a very unique spicy flavour with the secret ingredient to achieving this being Pavbhaji masala. Pavbhaji masala is used to make the very typical popular street food Pav-Bhaji.
You will need:
- 2 cup cooked basmati rice (grains should be separate)
- 1 cup of boiled or steamed vegetables like carrots, peas, sweetcorn, cauliflower and green beans
- 1 capsicum – chopped
- 1 big onion finely – chopped
- 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
- 2 red tomatoes chopped
- salt to taste
- 3-4 green chillies
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 3 tbsp oil or butter
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder (optional)
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 2 tbsp pav bhaji masala
Heat oil or butter in a heavy bottom or non stick pan. Then add the cumin seeds. Subsequently, add the chopped onions, sauté until the onions turn glassy. Now add the ginger-garlic paste and add green chillies. After a few minutes add mixed vegetables and capsicum with salt and cook for about 3-4 minutes until the capsicum turns tender. Now add the tomatoes. Once the tomatoes have become soft and start loosing water, add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder and the pav bhaji masala. Now mix in the cooked rice. Combine well until the rice is nicely mixed with the spice mixture.
Serve hot with some raita and enjoy!
