One of the most famous of Maharashtrian recipes, Misal is a scrumptious cocktail of savouries and sprouts! Wholesome and tasty sprouts are cooked with tangy tomatoes and pungent onions, not to forget the spice powders and the special coconut-onion based misal masala! All of this is further enhanced with chivda, potatoes and other appropriate ingredients to make a sumptuous accompaniment for laddi pav. The best part about Misal is that it suits breakfast, dinner and any other time you wish to have it.
