Misal Pav

Misal pav is a popular dish from Maharashtra,India . It consists of misal, a spicy curry usually made of sprouted moth beans and pav,a type of Indian bread roll. The dish is garnished with farsan, onions, lemon and coriander before serving. I got the recipe from NDTV Cooks.

Ideally sprouted moth beans is used for making the usal. However you can use mixed sprouts as well.
