Misal Paav


Is a very famous Maharastrain snack. Long time since i have made this at home. So prepared especially for my husband. He likes all Maharastrain and few Andhra dishes.
Misal paav is nothing like karnataka's (kaalu saru) sprouts sambar. Just a little bit of change the masala and adding onions into the misal, You can have it along with buns (paav) butter fried. I have used the Maharashtrian Goda Masala for this.
For Goda Masala, i have borrowed the recipe from Trupti's Blog. For Misal recipe i have used the recipe from Mumbai Masala as a guideline but I have changed the method.
