What is Misal in Misal Tacos | Maharashtrian Misal baked tacos

Misal is a popular food of Maharashtra. I got to taste this nutritious dish misal, few years back once enroute to Mahabaleshwar.

We took a break to have tea on the way, and saw many food joints serving popular Maharashtrian dishes.

Many breakfast options like batata vada, Kothimbir vadi, kande pohe, sabudana khichdi, and Misal pav etc were here to relish and we decided to taste misal pav. And I must say we weren’t disappointed at all.

My recipes from Maharashtrian cuisine are  Ukdiche Modaks with oats

What are the ingredients used to make these nutritious tacos

The basic ingredients to make the Misal are various sprouts, poha, boiled potato, onion, garlic, coriander, farsan and tari/kat/rasa.

We, at  home, usually make this misal during weekdays as lunch/dinner.  It’s such a refreshing change from regular dal chawal-sabzi roti kinda meals.

Let’s begin with making homemade baked taco shells :

Combine the flours and seasoning. Mix the oil, and salt to make a soft dough by using enough warm water.
Cover the dough with cloth and rest it for 10 minutes.

 

Roll out thin rounds chapatis. Give the proper round shape by any lid or bowl cover to make equal sized taco shells.

Prick lightly with a fork. Roast it on tawa on both sides lightly.
Now preheat an oven at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.

Arrange roasted taco chapatis on oven steel rack by leaving 1 rod, so as to give U shape.
Bake it on 185 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes.

Keep the baked tacos shells in an air-tight tin.

To make misal :

Pressure cook the sprouts with salt to 2 whistles. Keep aside.

In a deep pan put oil. Add mustard seeds. When it starts spluttering, add curry leaves, red chili powder, haldi, & chopped onions. Saute for a while.

Add chopped tomatoes, mashed potatoes, soaked poha, green chilies, sprouted & boiled moth beans, some salt, misal masala powder.

Give a gentle mix. Before switching off the flame put lemon juice. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
