Beetroot Pav Bhaji Recipe

The deep red colour of cooked beetroots and the palate-warming flavour of pav bhaji masala team up to make this Beetroot Pav Bhaji a delightful dish that everyone will love.

The grated beetroot is combined with other veggies that go into the classic bhaji like onions, tomatoes, mashed potatoes, etc., and flavoured with the typical spice powders like chilli powder and pav bhaji masala.

The sweetness of the beetroot is a good match for the spiciness, giving you a very balanced and enjoyable flavour.

Serve it with nice buttery pav, and do not forget the lemon wedges because its tangy touch adds great value to the bhaji.
