Keto pav bhaji


  1. 1 whole cauliflower cut into florets2 tbsp butter.
  2. 2 whole tomatoes finely diced
  3. 1 whole green capsicum (bell pepper) finely diced
  4. 1 cup water
  5. 1 tsp red chili powder
  6. 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  7. 1 1/2 tsp pav bhaji masala
  8. 3 tbsp fresh coriander finely chopped.
  9. 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  10. 1 whole red onion finely diced (extra for garnish)
  11. salt to taste1 whole fresh lime to taste.


  • Fill a large pot with water and add a pinch of salt, bring to boil.
  • Once boiled, add the cauliflower to the pot and cook for about 8 minutes. The cauliflower should be soft and easy to mash, you don’t want it al dente.
  • Remove the cauliflower from heat and strain. Return to the pot and mash the cauliflower. Don’t go so far to turn the cauliflower to a paste.
  • Return the pot to the stove and make a well in the middle. Add 1 tablespoon of butter, the diced tomatoes, green capsicum and 1 tsp of salt. Mix everything together and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add half a cup of water and mix well before covering the pot and boiling for 10 minutes.
  • Remove lid and mash everything together until it’s a smooth consistency.
  • Add 1 tsp chili powder, ¼ tsp of turmeric, 1 tsp pav bhaji masala and 2 tbsp of finely chopped coriander. Mix everything together and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Make a well in the middle of the pan by pushing the mixture to the edges. Place 1 tbsp of butter in the centre, as it is melting add ½ tsp pav bhaji masala, 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste, 1 finely chopped red onion, 1 tbsp of finely chopped coriander and some lime juice. Saute these ingredients in the centre of the pan by mixing well for 1 minute.
  • Combine all the ingredients well and add ½ cup water to adjust the consistency. Boil and mash the mixture for 5 minutes. I like to keep mine quite a chunky consistency, but it can be mashed down to a fine paste if you prefer. If using, add red food coloring at this point.
