Pav Bhaji Dosa

Whether or not you’re a fan of the Mumbai special street food pav bhaji, this recipe is going to make you fall in love with it. Because it is the best of both the worlds. It is a dosa with the classic filling of a pav bhaji masala. In Mumbai we get many variations of dosa like Mysore Masala Dosa, Jini Dosa, Schezwan Dosa, etc. This Pav Bhaji Dosa is another popular variation of dosa from Mumbai. This one is tasty and easy too.

About Pav Bhaji Dosa

Pav Bhaji is a personal favorite. At home, everyone is fond of this quintessential Mumbai street food specialty. So, I end up making this dish, more than often.

And sometimes, when there’s enough of the bhaji that is left, I turn to this recipe of Pav Bhaji Dosa and make a lovely fusion dish out of it.

I have had the Pav Bhaji Dosa many times in Mumbai and it is equally worth trying for dosa as well as pav bhaji lovers.

When these two individual preparations come together, there’s an explosion of flavors and textures that dance on the palate.

Like I already mentioned, with some leftover bhaji or idli-dosa batter, this recipe can be easily done with the taste of both these preparations in one dish itself.

What better way of using up both these recipes and create something that is also a superhit when it comes to taste.

Customizations

Also, besides the leftover bhaji from pav bhaji and the dosa batter, all I use in this recipe of dosa is some finely chopped onions and oil or butter or ghee to fry the dosas.

You’ll can even add some finely chopped tomatoes and coriander leaves, if you wish to. Keep in mind that the usual Aloo Masala that we include while making Masala Dosa is not added in the Pav Bhaji Dosa.

Some of the other customizations that can be done to this recipe is to add some gated cheese or grated paneer or tofu or a squeeze of a bit of lemon juice. You can experiment the way you wish to, with whatever your palate loves.

This dosa is not dry. So, you don’t essentially need to have it with chutney and can skip it easily. Instead, pair it with some dry chutney powder like the Idli Podi.
