Add ginger-garlic paste, pav bhaji masala, turmeric powder kashmiri mirch powder, salt & chopped tomatoes. Mix & stir them on low flame until fragrant. Mash the tomatoes using the spatula. Now add the mashed veggie mix, capsicum, sugar, green chilies & peas. Mix well & add 1 cup of water. Mix & cook on medium flame for 10-12 minutes. Keep stirring to prevent burning from the bottom of the pan. Mash the peas little bit. Next to add garam masla powder. Mix well & add some butter(as much as you like)at this stage. Remove from heat.

You can skip the vegetable oil part & can add butter, if you like more buttery taste.
