I thought Pav Bhaji Masala is a side dish only for Pav Bhaji. But my friend Amrutha broke my assumption by serving it with bread slices toasted with butter.  She made it really tasty and I had it as such in a plate. You can make it as a simple chat in the evening time in just 1 more step. Yes. Chop the big onions finely and mix it with the Pav Bhaji Masala. You are done. Squeeze lemon juice as much as you like. Make sure that you garnish with coriander leaves. Thats it. You also need to make sure that you do not prepare it so spicy. All set for a simple and easy chat. Believe me..

Serving Suggestion: Serve it as a chat as I explained before. Serve it as side dish for bread toast, plain bread, roti, poori.

1. Pressure cook the vegetables and keep it ready. Mash the vegatables a little bit so that we will get the pav bhaji masala in gravy consistency. Do not mash it more. Just mash lightly. Heat oil or butter in a pan and saute cumin seeds till they crackle. Add big onion and saute till it turns transparent. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes off.

2. Add chopped tomato and saute till it turns mushy. Add mashed vegetables, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, pav bhaji masala powder, red chilli powder, salt, sugar and required water. Cover the pan and cook it for 10 minutes in low flame or till the spices blend with the gravy. The pav bhaji masala would give nice aroma and taste when it is completely cooked. There should not be any raw taste. Switch off the stove once done.
