Pao Bhaji

Made this yesterday, for lunch. Had this recipe quite sometimes now, got the pao bhaji masala from Mustaffa Centre. Bought the breads from Carrefour@ Suntec on Saturday... Mr Hubby got $500 gift voucher from his Dinner & Dance night...already used the other day, so balance $150 we used to buy groceries and other stuff. I took alot of cheese and breads...I told myself might else well used up the whole amount rather then to comeback again to Carrefour.. quite a distance from our house since its going to be expired......
The verdict, the pao bhaji, taste like thosai masala's potato fillings ....quite fulling, I ate around 4-5 small round buns and it covered for my lunch...the potatoes mixture are quite an amount, so if you want to try, maybe you can half it...imagine I gave away about 10 buns to 2 separate neighbours cause the mixture can feed the 'whole village'...hehehehe....
Ingredients:-(10-13 Pac)
4 potatoes
1/2 head cauliflower
2 carrots
1 cup green peas
1/4 cup channa dhall
2 onions, chopped
4 tomatoes sliced
12 bread rolls (or buns)
2 tablespoons oil
oil to pan fry the rolls

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon mustard seeds

2 teaspoons pao bhaji masala (I bought @Mustaffa centre)

Wash, peel and cut potatoes.
Wash trim and chop(or grated) the cauliflower and carrots in small pieces.
Rinse and drain dhall and put in a 2 quart pot to boil in 2 cups of water
When little cooked(after 10 mins) add the potatoes and salt.
Cook until the potatoes are done, mash them along with dhall.
Add the chopped(or grated) cauliflower, carrots and green peas to the dhall mix.
Cook for another 15 minutes until the carrots are tender.
Add water as needed.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil on medium heat in a skillet.
Saute the mustard seeds in hot oil.
Add the whole red chillies (can be removed before serving)
Add the onions, stir until translucent.
