Being a vegetarian I tend to be limited to a Burger King in the fast food chain or a Morning star black bean burger patty and it is great for quick meals. However it does get very boring, so I got inspired by an India snack time recipe Sabudana Vada which is made out of Tapioca pearls. I decided to try out something different, and this totally random experimental recipe turned out that I no longer have to stock my freeze with Morning Star Patties but rather my pantry cans of grabanzo beans.
I came about this recipe when I was on a low-calorie diet and was trying to switch out the boring Sunday morning omelets. Just one search and Pinterest came up with thousands of different recipes. Below recipe is my take on it.
A little history about Pav Bhaji. It was introduced as a quick lunchtime dish for textile mill workers in Mumbai and has gained demand around the world. In my last trip to Mumbai there about 10-12 different variations of Pav Bhaji. My recipe below is sticking to its roots.
