Misal Pav is a very popular dish from the Indian state of Maharashtra. Misal means curry and pav is bun. Both are served together and hence, known as "Misal Pav". It is generally sprouted moth beans cooked in a spicy gravy. But here in this recipe, I prepared misal with mixed sprouts. It can be made with chana sprouts too.
They are served with a garnish of farsan / sev (savouries), chopped onion, tomatoes, coriander leaves and lemon wedges. This delicious and wholesome dish is actually had for breakfast, but they can be enjoyed any time of the day, either for lunch or dinner. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.
