cooker pav bhaji recipe | pav bhaji in cooker | pressure cooker pav bhaji with step by step photo and video recipe. street food recipes are always one of the popular demands for most of us. there is a set of process and steps which makes it unique and obviously tasty and thus making it a popular choice. yet these street food recipes can also be tweaked and made with instant pot or pressure cooker and pressure cooker pav bhaji is one of them.

i have posted so many street foods and chaat recipes till now, but i get so many requests to post instant pav bhaji recipes. well technically there isn’t any instant version of it unless you use ready to eat premixes, but you can make it in an instant pot or pressure cooker. so basically, rather than boiling the vegetables and frying the spices separately, just one cooker is used from start to end. it not only reduces the cooking time but also reduces the number of utensils used and hence the cleaning of those. moreover, to make it homely i have used beetroot which gives the bhaji a strong red colour. it also adds sweetness and hence you may have to be generous with the amount of spice and pav bhaji powder. hence i would strongly recommend following this recipe once and serve it to your friends and family.

furthermore, i would like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variants to the cooker pav bhaji recipe. firstly, i have used a typical 5-litre pressure cooker to prepare this recipe. while this recipe is tailored for a pressure cooker, you may also use instant pot too as it follows the same principle. secondly, adding beetroot is only for the purpose of colour and do not add any significant flavour to the recipe. you may totally skip it as it may add extra sweetness to the recipe. finally, do not add extra water while seasoning the bhaji as the initial water should be sufficient. if you feel the bhaji is thick, you may add water in batches till it gets the right consistency.

finally, i request you to check my other related street food recipes collection with this post of instant pot pav bhaji recipe. it mainly includes my other related recipes like masala pav, pav bhaji, kanda bhaji pav, misal pav, pav sandwich, vada pav, tawa pulao. further to these i would also like to add some more additional recipe categories like,
