Misal/ Moong or Mooth Sprout Curry


Misal is a delicacy from the Central part of India, and is very famous in Mumbai. It is a hot, spicy and pungent curry made with Moong or Mooth Sprouts cooked with onions, garlic, chillies and tomatoes in a gravy. It is served with Coriander/mint chutney, natural yogurt, Bombay mix/Varsaan and with a local bread called as Pav on the side. It is one of the most commonly eaten breakfasts in the central parts of India but it also makes a great anytime snack. This humble dish Misal Pav was awarded the worlds tastiest vegetarian dish from the Foodie hub Global Award of 2015 in London.

Its a favourite at our place too. I made it today but instead of white Pav (which tastes awesome) I served it with a brown baguette and R likes to eat it just on its own. Its a single one pot dish and its a great comfort food for a lazy Sunday and pretty nutritious too. After plating it up, it looks very fancy but doest require that much of work though if you have the chutneys ready, before hand.
