Pav Bhaji, Mixed Vegetable Curry

One of the easiest dishes, when you are running out of vegetables or have a bunch of vegetables which you want to finish before running off to the market.

You need
Oil - 3 Teaspoons
Butter - 2 Tablespoons
Pav Bhaji Masala - 1 Teaspoon
Coriander Seed Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Chili Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Cumin - 1 Teaspoon
Cilantro - a handful, chopped
Salt- as needed
a Potato Masher

Any type of Veggies

I used
1/2 of a big Radish
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 Cauliflower
3 Potatoes
1 cup of Frozen peas
1 and 1/2 Onions - Chopped
3 to 4 Tomatoes depening on their size (I used canned organic ones)- chopped
--->Pressure Cook all vegetables with 1/2 cup water except the Onions and Frozen Peas.
If you dont have a pressure cooker, steam all the veggies in a microwave or a steamer until it can be crushed with a finger!
---> Add the oil, and add the cumin, and once it starts to roast, add the chopped onions, and start to saute, until the onions start to become brown
--->Add the peas, and saute till the peas have cooked
--->Add all the powders along with the salt
--->Add the pressure cooked vegetables,and add the chopped tomatoes
and the important part
MASH it all (not too mushy though) with your Potato Masher.
--->Let it all come to a boil, add the butter and the Chopped Cilantro and
--->Eat hot with Pav Bread or any Bread or Rotis!
