What’s cooking :
Pav bahji is one of the most famous and much loved street food of Mumbai. It consists of a mash of spicy vegetables slathered in butter, and eaten scooped up with a hot bread roll.
If I had to find a comparable North American dish I would describe it as a fragrant Indian sloppy joe. Messy, comforting and utterly delicious.
Indian cuisine doesn’t have to be complicated. And, like many other cuisines, a well stocked spice cupboard will get you far. The list of ingredients in today’s recipe might look a bit exhaustive, but it uses spices that are used worldwide. They are well worth getting as you’ll use them again and again.
