Misal Pav | Mumbai Chaat Recipe | Indian Street Food Recipe


Misal Pav is a Mumbai based street food.  It consists of spicy curry usually made of sprouts, mutter, chick peas and chilly powder gravy. The final dish is topped with Punjabi mix, Farsan or sev, poha, onions, lemon and coriander. It is usually served with bread toasted with butter or pav buns. A great Indian chaat which makes a great evening snack. I am finally so happy to get my gear on SNC challenge hosted by my dear friend (sis) Divya Pramil of You too can cook Indian Food, she is well known as the brain child of the SNC group. Yes I take great joy in pulling her leg :P This month's challenge by the South Team is hosted by Sherin of Kuk's Kitchen and the challenge is to make Medu Vadas which is my favorite. On the other hand Meena of Random Ramblings North team has challenged us to make Misal Pav. When I saw this challenge I was really thrilled :-) thanks Meena for this wonderful recipe. Being someone who loves pav bajji and pani puri this recipe was totally new to me and thanks to SNC, Divya and Meena for giving us a platform to learn new recipes of Indian origin with original fool proof recipes tried & tested by members. So here's goes my entry to this month's challenge.


Verdict ~ We loved the tangy taste of this dish and its super easy to make. A great snack that is healthy and filling.

  • In the same pan add 1 tsp oil, once hot add the jeera/cumin and once it starts to brown add the spice powders - red chilli, turmeric, corriander, garam masala and the paste.
