Misal Pav

One the most famous snack of Maharashtra. Most people like it spicy.ย Eaten with pav and farsan sprinkled with lemon wedges on the side, this dish is a meal in itself. With the nutrition of sprouts it surely becomes a healthy lunch/snack/dinner.

The local places in Maharashtra boasts of many such beautiful,spicy misal pav. The recipes vary a little and everyone has their “secret ingredients” added. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love making this as its easy, can be made with handy ingredients .

Today, i share my version, simply pressure cooked and ready to eat. ๐Ÿ™‚



2 Cups Matki sprouted

2 Onions, chopped

1 Tomato chopped

1 tsp Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder

1 tsp Onion Garlic paste

Salt to taste
To temper:

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/4 tsp Asafoetida (Hing)

3-4 tsp Oil

1 tbsp Groundnuts

1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste

1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder

1 tsp Sugar (optional but recommended)

Water as required

Coriander as required


Pav/ Bread

1 Lemon Slice

1. In a pan, heat 3-4 tbsp of oil.

2. ย Add mustard seeds,ground nuts, ginger garlic paste, chopped onions, salt to taste, onion garlic masala, kashmiri red chilli powder, turmeric powder. Mix all the ingredients well.Add salt and mix well.

3. Add the tomatoes, allow to cook and then add sprouts and give it a stir. Add water and pressure cook the sprouts for a couple of whistles. Garnish with ย coriander leaves .

Serve the Misal with some Farsan & ย Pav/ Bread.

Garnish it with chopped onion and lemon wedges.




Water should be more as when we add farsan it would get dried up.

Adjust the spice level be adding or reducing the chilli powder. If you don’t have onion garlic powder, just add red chilli powder more (the one that adds spice not the color one)




Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say โ€œthereโ€™s always scope of betterโ€. I like to follow that. I believe thereโ€™s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
