Misal is an all-time favourite Maharashtrian snack that is tasty, energising and nutritious. Here, we have created a faraali version of this popular snack - upvas misal Indian snack, so you can top up your energy reserves on fasting days too.

Potato cubes are cooked with an out of-the-world masala that combines peanuts, coconut and coriander. This gives the Maharashtrian upvasachi farali misal a wonderful flavour and interesting mouth-feel too.

This quick upvas snack has the blend of varied textures - from perfectly cooked potato cubes to juicy raisins of the farali chivda. Top it with farali chivda and masala salli to enhance the flavour and further add an exciting crunchy texture. You can also have a go at other faraal recipes like Kand Aloo Pakoda or Buckwheat Dhokla.

Tips for farali misal. 1. Prefer to use grated coconut so blending is easier. But if you don’t have it, add finely chopped coconut and ensure after blending there are no pieces left behind. 2. To decrease cooking time, you can cook the potatoes in a microwave instead of the traditional way of cooking them in a pressure cooker. 3. Some people do not include coriander in their list of fasting food. If so, you can avoid it. 4. Some people do not use chilli powder also during fasting. You can replace it with green chilli paste. 5. We have used rock salt in this recipe as it is allowed in upvas cooking. But if you wish, you can add table salt. 6. The misal can be made in advance, but it should be re-heated and topped with farali chivda and potato salli just before serving. This is because the chivda and salli may otherwise make the misal dry. Also with time, the misal and chivda will become soggy.
