This is a very popular recipe in India, liked by almost everyone. You may have to go to a nearby Indian shop to get the 'Pav Bhaji Masala' that is the special spice to bring the flavour. Pav is actually the buns. Bhaji is the vegetables cooked with spice.
Fab. Just back from Maharashtra where this was a regular. Don't think I used as much veg as you suggest, it was pretty thick, I kept adding a bit of water to keep the consistency smooth. Will be making again soon. - 20 Feb 2015

Not like the ones you get on streets of India, so I asked my Indian friend and she had some suggestions: Substitute cabbage with green beans. Boil carrots, potatoes, cauliflower, peas and green beans beforehand. Saute onions and garlic in butter/vegan butter. Add tomatoes/puree and spice and stir for another minute or 2. Add spice (PB masala) ginger/chillies and freshly chopped cilantro (1 cup) and stir for another minute. Add all pre-cooked, lightly mashed veggies, salt, and lemon juice. Cook on lowest heat for about 10 minutes, check seasoning and add lemon juice, spice, and salt according to taste. Cook on lowest heat for 20 more minutes to allow the flavors to sink in. Viola! Tasted pretty close to what I had on the streets of India! - 04 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
