Misal Pav

One the most famous snack of Maharashtra. Most people like it spicy. 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. 🙂 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. 🙂

Misal Pav


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)
