Misal pav recipe | Maharashtrian Misal pav is spicy, lip smacking and popular sprouted lentil curry. It’s a famous maharashtrian street food, snack or breakfast meal.

Made with sprouted bean curry, accompanied by farsan,onions, tomatoes and served traditionally with lightly buttered pav/dinner rolls.

In other words misal means “Mixture”, and if you are residing in Mumbai, you must not miss unique taste of this.

In addition to that, this wholesome and nutritious curry is Vegan & Gluten free.

Misal is favorite breakfast/brunch for Mumbaikars. It’s so very easy to prepare, is pocket friendly and ingredients are very simple and easily available in every kitchen.

My Misal tacos recipe is inspired by this popular street food of Maharashtra.

Ingredients required to make Misal pav recipe | Maharashtrian Misal pav

The basic ingredients of the Misal are sprout, lentils, poha, boiled potatoes, onions, tomatoes, coconut, farsan and tari/kat/rasa.

When delectable mixture of savory snacks is served with spicy concoction, it is termed as rassa/tari/kat/gravy.

The flavor and texture of the misal is enhanced with tari/rasa/kat that is served on the side.

These all components are assembled and served hot with pav/dinner rolls. In many places misal is served with dollop of curd to balance the flavours as misal is supposed to be high on heat factor.

What sprouts are used in making Misal

Generally Matki (Moth Beans) sprouts are used in making Misal. You can however, use any lentils like whole moong (mung) beans sprouts too.

However you can also combine moong and matki, masoor/red lentils, dry white peas, black chick peas, Lima beans/Vaal, and Horse gram/kulthi. We always love to make Mixed sprouts misal.

If you don’t have sprouts easily available, then just soak all the lentils & beans at least for an hour or so before making misal.
