Samosa Pav / Bhajiya Pav

This is a life-changing recipe, courtesy of Bijal who works in one of our shops (and appeared in a couple of Bollywood films in her youth!).

She says:

“Samosa and Bhajiya are very famous street foods which you will find in every nook and corner of a street in Mumbai, India. This meal is called Samosa Pav / Bhajiya Pav where the Samosa or Bhaji is sandwiched between a bread roll flavoured with two chutneys: spicy green chutney and tangy red chutney. For the red chutney, you can use readymade mango chutney, tamarind ketchup (if you can find it) or just good old tomato ketchup. While the Samosas or Bhajis are in the oven, you can quickly whip up your spicy green chutney.”

 

Ingredients

Half a bunch of coriander

12-15 mint leaves

2 green chillies

1 inch ginger

1 clove garlic

1/2 a lime

Salt to taste

 

Method

Rinse the coriander well in water and roughly chop including the stem.

Put the chopped coriander, mint leaves, chopped green chillies, garlic and ginger in a blender. Squeeze the lime juice and add two spoons of water. Add salt to taste. Blend to a smooth paste. (The chutney will keep for a few days in the fridge.)

To assemble the Pav, cut the dinner roll horizontally. Apply the two chutneys on both the inner sides of the roll, sandwich your hot samosa or onion bhaji and enjoy :)
