Pav Bhaji Pot Pie

All Friday’s should be treatwise, I believe ! Now what the hell is Pav Bhaji Pot Pie, you must be wondering? And wait !!We have a giveaway right at the end of the post.

Pav means Bread and Bhaji is a vegetable medley stirred with spices. Its a classic Mumbai street food that any food lover cannot deny. I can vouch on my flavors of Pav Bhaji and it turns out perfectly every single time.  I inaugrated my classic Mini Cast Iron Casserole Dishes from Proware Kitchen and made us some fusion Pav Bhaji Pot Pie.

Pav Bhaji Pot Pie

Yay!! And thank God its almost Friday. Time to indulge in my favourite street food again. I really cannot believe we are just about to enter our weekend zone. As we approach Weekends, its sometimes like enjoying an elaborate comfort food or sometimes all about street food or even indulgence meal. It all depends on how the week has treated us…

We experienced a heatwave this week with a whopping 35C. I was feeling awfully drained because of the heat, whilst we also indulged in ice creams like never before. The kiddo’s didn’t have restriction in the numbers — They had not 1, not 2 sometimes 3 a day:) Everything seemed to have come to a stand still. The house felt like a hot furnace no matter how many Fans/ Coolers we had at home..
We had dinner outside in our garden even after the sun set.. just because it was much cooler than the house…

At a point, I felt we were camping in our own house. The boys were finding the coolest part of the house to retire for the day and it was definitely not the bedroom..

Phew!! I am so so glad that weather is behaving again and we have our ‘Original’ UK Weather back at 24 C.

Every other person in UK would speak to you about weather, right from your family to when you step out of the house.. It would be the first line of the conversation maximum number of times..

I am so glad that things are returning to normal .. and I am having the energy and zeal to post this recipe for you.

finely coriander leaves
small butter cubes

Directions
Heat the oven to 200 C.
Unroll the puff pastry sheet and make 4 disks to the size larger than the cast iron pan.
