Masala pav is a tangy street food, which is available in Mumbai.  This is a my version of "masala pav". Actually it is a one kind of open sandwich... which you can make for evening snacks.

Heat oil in a pan, add garlic and onion. Saute till the onions turn translucent. 
Add capsicum, jalapeno or chili, saute for a minute.
Add tomato, salt, crushed black pepper, oregano and saute for 2 minutes. Masala is ready.

Heat butter on a tava (griddle), add ¼ th of the prepared masala and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
