What is pav sandwich?

Pav sandwich is a very interesting and delicious sandwich made up of pav, obviously, sliced vegetables and flavoured with pav bhaji masala and garlic, lots of butter and fresh coriander. It is very simple to make but it is certainly is different from the sandwiches we regularly eat. The best part about this recipe is you can make pav sandwich with leftover pav as this recipe doesn’t call for any special or too many ingredients. It can easily be made for breakfast or high tea.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for pav sandwich

And calls for pav. Since it is the main ingredient make sure the pav used are soft and fresh. You may go for some homemade pav. The recipe doesn’t call for many spices, just one – pav bhaji masala. To add a hint of garlic, I have used garlic powder. You may use garlic paste or garlic chutney or simply skip garlic if you don’t like it. Apart from that, vegetables are required. I have used the basic ones i.e. onion, tomatoes and boiled potatoes. Lots of butter is required, don’t cut down its quantity.

How to make pav sandwich

1. Preparations

Slice the vegetables. Cut pav into halves. Mix masalas to make masala.


2. Sauté masala and coriander and roast pav

Heat a pan. Add 1 and ½ tsp butter. When it starts to melt add approximately 1 tbsp chopped coriander and ¼ of the prepared masala mix. Put a slit pav on the masala and roast till it is crisp. Roast only from the inside.


3. Arrange vegetables to form sandwich

On the lower half of the roasted pav put 1 slice of onion and 2 slices of boiled potato and tomatoes each, seasoned with some salt. Cover with the other half to form a sandwich.


4.Grill (optional)

Heat a griller. Apply little butter on sandwich. Grill in a pan or griller. This step is completely optional. The pav sandwich tastes awesome without this too.


5. Bon appétit

Enjoy with a cup of chai. Believe me, no chutney or ketchup is required.
