It's the Indian vegetarian version of sloppy joes. This recipe is from the Everest Pav Bhaji Masala box. It can be made using all sorts of bread, but a lighter white bread is best. Potatoes, cauliflower, green pepper and peas are traditional vegetables, but you can substitute other vegetables, like carrots, that will get soft enough to mash. Buy your pav bhaji masala online, at an Indian store, or you can make your own.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Saute garlic and most of the onions in oil until soft.
- 2Add pav bhaji powder,salt, and tomatoes and roast.
- 3Boil the vegetables and when soft mash them. Mash should be runnier than the consistency of mashed potatoes, but not watery.
- 4Add vegetables to the tomato mix and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes, until heated thoroughly. Add more water, if necessary to prevent burning.
- 5While the vegetables are doing their final cooking, butter the bun halves and grill them on a griddle.
- 6Put 1/4 stick of butter and coriander leaves on top of the vegetables.
- 7Put hamburger bun halves on your plate and top with plenty of vegetable mix. Sprinkle with remaining onion (it should still be raw) and a wedge of lemon to squeeze over it all.
