All day breaky? I’m in!
Dinner tonight was a comforting Misal Pav. This is a popular breakfast dish from Maharashtra, India. It consists of misal (a spicy curry usually made from mung beans) and pav (a type of Indian bread roll). The final dish is topped with farsan or sev (yummy fried goodness), lemon and coriander.
It’s super simple to make, I soaked 1 cup of mung beans overnight and pressure cooked the beans with half a cup of water, salt and turmeric.
I then made a curry paste: Oil, asafoetida, ginger, a tomato, some dried coconut and a dash of water. Once cooked I left it too cool till it was ready to blend.
Then on a pan, I added the oil, curry leaves, red chilli powder, garam masala, turmeric and coriander powder and sautéed the spices. Then added the curry paste to spices and cooked this till the oil separates. I added in the cooked mung beans, a couple cups of water, and salt to taste.
Served this with some lightly toasted bread, a squeeze of lemon juice,and @bhujasnacks ‘s Ancient Grain Twists! (Unfortunately ran out of coriander at home!)
