Ingredients (240 ml cup used)
  • ¾ cup of chopped onions
  • ⅓ cup of tomatoes chopped
  • 1 green chili
  • ½ tsp. ginger garlic paste (or shredded ginger and garlic)
  • 1 green chili
  • 2 to 4 tbsp. Desiccated coconut
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • ¼ tsp. fennel seeds powder (if your garam masala does not have it)
  • ¾ tsp. red chili powder
  • ½ tsp. amchur powder / dry mango powder (adjust too much can make the curry sour)
  • Pinch of turmeric
  • 2 cups of matki beans / moth beans Salt to taste
  • Oil as needed
  • ½ tsp. Cumin seeds
  • Water as needed
  • 6 pav buns
  • ¼ cup of chopped onions
  • Green chilies (optional)
  • Lemon juice
  • Coriander leaves
  • Mixture / chivda / farsan as required
  1. Soaked matki or moth beans overnight. If you like to sprout them you can. Mine were partially sprouted.
  2. Heat oil in pan, add green chili, onions and fry till they turn translucent.
  3. Add ginger garlic paste, fry until the raw smell goes off.
  4. Add tomatoes, grated coconut, turmeric and salt, fry till tomatoes turn mushy. Set aside to cool and once cool grind to smooth. I forgot to add coconut at this stage and so I added later
  5. Heat the same pan with some oil, add cumin allow to splutter.
  6. Add this grinded mix, red chili powder, garam masala, amchur powder, fennel powder. Mix well and fry for a min.
  7. Add the beans. Mix and pour enough water to cook. Adjust the salt. Cover and cook till fully done, takes around 7 mins on a medium flame.
  8. misal pav is ready. Transfer misal to serving bowls, add the garnishing just before you serve as it tends to become soggy fast.
