How to make Misal Pav

  1. For Usal - Heat a pan, add a tsp of oil. When it is hot add mustard seeds, let them crackle, add asafoetida and cumin seeds. Add sprouts, saute it. Add salt, turmeric, red chilli, water, cover and let it simmer until the oil separates.
  2. Kat - In a deep dish pan, heat oil. Add chopped garlic, ginger and onion. Saute it for a few minutes. Add tomato and let it cook till the oil separates. Add the coconut. Transfer the mixture to a blender when cool. Blend it to a fine paste.
  3. Kat Continued - Put the mixture back to the pan, add garam masala, salt to taste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and 3 cups of water. Let it simmer till the oil comes to the top. Keep aside.
  4. Serving Missal - In a serving bowl, first place, the fillers, boiled mashed potato, farsan, usal. Serve the kat in a small bowl so that it could be used as required. Garnish using finely chopped onions, tomatoes, lemon and coriander leaves.
My Tip: There are several parts of this dish that combine to be one: Part 1 – Usal; Part 2 – Kat (pronounced as cut and not cat); Part 3 – Fillers; Part 4 – Accompaniments & garnishing. If possible, use the Kolhapuri, Kanda Lahsun masala in place of garam masala for an authentic taste
