Tawa Pulav with Masala Papad

Yum
Chats, Pani puri stalls, tawa pulav and pav bhaji stalls on street, who doesn't like those foods. We all know how unhealthy those stuff are but still we crave for that. For me it's been almost decade and half since I am in other side of the world and I crave for this street food so much, I make them as often I can make. I already made Ragda Pattise, Chole chat and now this Tawa Pulav another dish from Street Stalls. It's so easy and chatpata you don't need anything else with it. But I had it with side dish with Pavbhaji. But you can have it with simple raita or pickle or just as it is. It is good if you have leftover rice or you can make fresh one too. I made fresh rice.

Recipe adopted from  Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor


Ingredients:
3 cups boiled basmati rice
1 cup mixed vegetables(carrot, capsicum, sweet peas)
1 chopped onion
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
3 finely chopped tomatoes
1 tsp each fresh grated ginger and chopped green chill
2-3 tsp Pav bhaji masala
1 tsp Red Chili powder
salt to taste
1 small stick cinnamon
1 star anise
2-3 cloves
1 green cardamom
salt to taste
Lime juice to taste.
3 tsp oil

Method:
To cook rice put enough water in it, add star anise, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. Add peas and carrot in it too so it's cook with rice and you don't need to boil separately  cook it till it's perfect , strain the extra water and put it aside. we need cold rice. Remove whole spices from it.

Heat a oil in non stick pan, add cumin seeds, when it changes the color, add onion and sauté till it's lightly browned.
Add tomatoes and cook it and mashed it with back spoon so its become mushy.
add ginger and chilies, pav bhaji masala. salt, red chili powder and mix it.
add capsicum and cook for two minutes only, you need crunch in it.
Then add rice with carrot and peas in it. mix it well , make sure you don't broke rice.
cook for 2-3 minutes and serve it warm.
Before serving add lime juice and  cilantro if you like.




I served it along side with Masala Papad

Ingredients :

6 roasted Papads
1/4 cup chopped coriander leaves
1/2 cup chopped mint leaves
1 green chili finely chopped
15 chopped cherry tomatoes (or 1 medium tomato)
1 medium onion finely chopped
salt and chat masala as per taste
Lime juice as per taste
 Method:

Mix everything in bowl.
Take one papad and spread generously on it and serve it immediately.
 Enjoy with Tawa Pulav and Pav Bhaji.
