Pav Sandwich | How to Make Masala Pav Sandwich | leftover Pav Recipe

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.

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 green chutney.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
