Misal pav, Misal recipe – Raks Kitchen

Misal pav is a popular dish from Maharashtra, made with moth beans / Spouts. The spicy gravy is served with pav.

It’s my long time wish to try misal at home. Every time I keep looking for recipe, the goda masala factor stops me from trying. Got this Organic moth beans from Wildseedsg for trying and I wanted to try this for sure first. Before I get into the recipe, I saw lot of videos in the Youtube and so confused about the recipe and method. Finally took this as it was easy to adapt. So this may not be an authentic one, but tastes close to it.

If I ever go to Pune again, I am trying Misal pav for sure. It sounds damn delicious the way they serve in the streets. Mine is just an adapted version that goes well with pav. I saw in some videos from popular street food options, they even serve it with bread slice. Other ways include different elements like aloo, poha, farsan, sev etc.

Are videos more your thing?

When I saw the ingredients, I knew how it will taste, except for the masala powder used in this. The goda masala makes the difference. And if you are like me and imagining something like pav bhaji, no. It’s nothing related. This is totally different kind of spicy gravy with coconut, chilli and coriander flavour along with the main goda masala. It is supposed to be thin as I see in the other videos they show from street foods. I guess I made a bit thick.

I used Misal masala itself instead of Goda masala. But I guess it’s almost similar. You can buy in groceries if you are in India. I got Swad brand from an online grocery shop in Singapore. Unlike garam masala, we use just a little in our recipes, this is supposed to be added more for the spicy, flavorful result.

How to sprout moth beans/ Matki

Wash & soak moth beans for 10 hours minimum. Change the water and add little fresh water, say 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup. Leave it overnight covered and it will absorb all the water and already started sprouting in the morning. Just toss and keep covered. It will continue to sprout evenly. Just make sure to sprinkle water if it gets dry.

You can refrigerate after this and use as needed in the recipe.

Love the fact that it is made with legume and a better option to make Aj eat such legumes/ sprouts. This moth beans aka matki is so easy to sprout. Even green moong sprouts same way easily.
