Its immensely hard for me to stick to a particular recipe. Eye balling is another characteristics which I am gifted with - although have to add how cumbersome it is when it comes to food blogging and precise measurements. Anyways, one special spice which might be making its home right in your own pantry right now is Pav Bhaji masala. Remember how you got some while making Pav Bhaji
2 months back? Most probably its lying unused right now in your pantry. Instead of having to see it every time I open my pantry, looking v sad, I use it on and oft in various recipes. I use it especially for my rice, biryani, pulao recipes. Sometimes I even use it while making stuffing for my parathas.
So imagine my surprise when during one of our work meetings (we have this practice of sometimes making dishes from home for such meetings - like an informal potluck), one of my colleagues who has an Indian sister-in-law got this yummy Pulao called Tawa Pulao. It not only tasted yummy but it had an amazing aroma wafting from it - something very familiar. Later on, she got us her sil's recipe and I was ecstatic. I was astounded to know that adding Pav bhaji masala was actually normal and classic in Mumbai Street food rice dish called as Tawa Pulao. This is made in the same large skillet where Pav Bhaji masala is heated. This rice is also heated along side and is made using the Pav bhaji masala! Talk about a yummy street food! For some reason, I was not aware of this and couldn't help making the same again at home. We loved it. This is the recipe given by my colleague's sil.
