For The Garnishing :

Recipe :

Boil the potatoes, carrot, cauliflower and beans. Once they are boiled, mash them. or can either mash them completely or partly as per your choice.

Heat oil in a wok. Add onions. Saute them till light brown. Add garlic. Saute a bit more. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Saute for a minute more. Put pav bhaji masala, salt n chili powder and mix it well. Add the capsicum and the peas. Let it cook till oil leaves the sides. Now simmer the flame and add the mashed vegetables. Mix it well and let it cook. Keep adding little water, just enough so that the veggie's dont touch the bottom. I prefer adding the vegetable stock in which I boiled the vegetables. Cook for another 3-4 minutes. Remove from flame

To Serve :
Cut the soft buns in half. Heat a pan. Take 1 half of the bun. Apply butter on both sides of the bun. Put it in the pan. Cook both sides till they are light brown. Do the same for all buns.

Serve the buns with the Vegetables, chopped red onions and lemon wedges.
