Burger Bhaji is classic twist to an indian street food Pav Bhaji. The bhaji is is delicous combintaion of mashed vegetables spices. This bhaji is generally served with Ladi Pav (Soft and Fluffy Dinner Rolls), and I am serving with burger. I’ve combined two of our favourite recipes to serve a bhaji in a bun.
Life is back to normal after spectacular holiday vacation. My little girl Ado’s Daycare is open again. And she was pretty excited about starting daycare again. I assume, that she missed her caretakers and pals badly, as she kept repeating their names the whole holiday season.
Finally today she went to her daycare for the first time this year! And this morning when I and hubby dropped her to the daycare she was so HAPPY and CHEERFUL. As she reached to the daycare, she instantly jumped over to her caretaker’s lap from mine. That is an incredible feeling for a mom, that her child is in good hands. I am blessed that she loves it there, and they take very good care of her. I could also see the happiness on both of their faces. Seemed like that the two of them share a great bond.
Her Daycare is about 1.5 km one way from home, and we prefer to walk down there. It is really a good physical exercise. We burn calories and it is cold, so this is a plus too. It keeps us moving and I love to walk too. NICE! Isn’t it?
It has already been one week in this year, and now we have only 51 weeks remaining here! We all know that time flies, but time flies even faster when you have so much to think, and so much to do. I feel blessed that I have that feeling of flying time, that means I am doing so much, and keeping myself occupied in lots of good things. This is my BLISS; and I truly am following my bliss! ARE YOU?
Everyone is ready for a fresh start to the new year, and so do I. I I have set new goals, I will have new challenges, and most importantly I have tons of new recipes that I cannot wait to try out in this new year. I have reached my last year goals, and I believe I would do the same this YEAR! 🙂
I always try to cook something new—something with a slight difference that I made previously. And why is so? Because I believe LIFE is too short it eat exact same food for years & years. 😉 I love to eat anything which is vegetarian. But I love to cook all kinds of chicken recipes, and they are just awesome as per my dear husband’s reaction to my chicken tikka curry! 🙂
If you want me to cook something specific for you, please ask me to do so! I would SO love to hear from you guys about what kind of recipes you might want to see. 🙂
I have put a few recipes on Facebook last week, but I think everyone is still in a holiday daze because I only got a few responses. If you are reading this, so please tell me what do you want me to cook for you this year? I would be more than happy to do that! 🙂
Ok, ok. Let’s finally talk about this delish recipe I prepared.
What is Burger Bhaji?
Burger Bhaji is a classic twist to a famous Indian Street Food Pav Bhaji. The actual dish is pav bhaji where ladi pav is used, but in this recipe, I used burger bun instead of Pav so I named it Burger Bhaji. Bhaji is full of veggies, and packed with lots of fiber and nutrients. Honestly, I just love this simple yet quite heavenly preparation. This is a quick and super simple meal, which takes only 30-40 minutes. It is DELICIOUS as a meal can be.
This time I am going with some Indian street food, but with the fresh theme here. Today I made for us Burger Bhaji.
In cold months, It really does not get any better than this Burger Bhaji.
It is so easy to cook. It takes only 30-40 minutes from start to finish, and everyone in your family would just LOVE it. This is a bright and healthy meal, It’s super cozy and perfect for this winter time.
How to use leftover bhaji?
There is a lot you can do with the leftover bhaji. Such as you can make another interesting recipe with the leftover, is Bhaji Paratha where you add bhaji to to the dough along with some spices and then roll it like a regular paratha (flatbread).
You can also roll bhaji into a patty and server it between buns, this makes a great Burger.
Or, you can simply have it as it is. Sometimes when I am really busy, I do make some extra dinner, which we can also have for lunch. Really, nothing is better than an easy dinner that doubles as the next days lunch too. And you would not believe some of the leftover dishes, they really taste even much better than the fresh version. YES, YES and YES! I am sober, and I seriously mean it. 🙂
