Misal Pav

Misal Pav is a very popular street food in Mumbai. A traditional Maharashtrian chaat dish, Misal Pav is made using moth beans, green gram and served with pav buns. Highly nutritious, they are generally served as a breakfast dish but these days they are served all round the day.

A vegetarian speciality, the dish is a complete dish by itself. For those who love spicy food, this is a must have. The dish is very similar to the iconic Pav Bhaji.
