Maharashtra ki Shaan - Misal Paav

Misal paav......every person from mumbai would know about this recipe. I simply love this item. It was some time back my back my staple food.....specially when i wasin college. we used to love the misal we used to get in the college.This misal is eaten with paav...(bun).I used to skip getting my tiffin box many a times so that i can eat the hot misal paav and vada paav from our canteen. it was so much fun.Hmmm miss all those days....

My friend who is a maharashtrian...used to make this at home..... just few days back when i was missing those old college days.... i called her and asked for the recipe.She was sweet enough to send it to me immidiately...So here goes the maharashtrian misal paav... iam sure u will love this...:)

To make this u need:

Dried white peas - 2 cups
Oil - 4 tsp
Jeera dhania powder - 2 tsp
Tomato - 2
Ginger garlic -1 1/2 tbsp
Green chillies - 2
Farsan - 1 packet
Dhania powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 1/4 tsp
coconut paste - 1/2 cup
red chilli powder -1 1/4 tsp
salt to taste


Soak the white peas overnight. Pressure cook the peas in a cooker.

In a big pan put some oil. Fry some jeera. When it splutters, add the chopped ginger - garlic paste, and the chopped onions. Fry them till the onion turns transparent. Add the finely chopped tomatoes.When the vegetables are tender, add the masalas to the onions and roast till the raw masala smell is gone. Now add the cooked white peas and salt to this and mix well. Add 2-3 glasses of water to the peas and mix well. Get this mixture to a boil. This mixture should not be very thick. It should be watery.

Your Misal is ready to be served hot. Garnish the farsan on top on this misal.Granish with freshly chopped coriander leaves and lemon wedges. Also add some fresh chopped onions.
