Misal pao is a popular dish in western India, There are several ways and variations to this spicy misal recipe in Maharastrian cuisine, but commonly it is prepared using moth beans and making and at the time of serving it is preferred to top them with mixed besan farsan with chopped onion and lemon wedges.

This spicy misal is served with pao or bread, This dish is unique because of its topping which is made with mixed chivda or sev or farsan.

This dish can be served as breakfast or as snack and it can also be extended for lunch and dinner, because eating this dish will make you fuller.

There are different way of preparing misal pao but in this recipe I have made mumbai style misal pao.

There are people who prepare missal curry with moth beans, but it can be replaced with moong beans, and the very good thing is you can use stored bought sprouted mung beans if you cannot find sprout moth beans.

I always like thin version of curry because we eat them with pao so it get easily absorbed and the taste is something absolutely delicious.

Nevertheless, You can also serve this curry with rotis or Rice there are many people who likes them.

From health point of you also it is very good, rich in proteins, if you are really health conscious then you can skip pao with whole wheat bread or you can have it with chapatis.

Follow my recipe to get very delicious misal pao recipe and definitely try my way of making it.
