Blogging Marathon# 29: Week 3/ Day 3 Theme: Course Wise Meal from any State - Maharashtra/ Lunch Dishes Dish: Usal-Misal Pav After 2 days of easy one-pot Maharashtrian dishes (Masala Bhath & Vaal Khichdi), today's dish is slightly elaborate and spicy. It's a great dish to entertain as well. I remember one of our dear Marwari friend serving this for dinner and it was probably one of the best tasting Misal Pav I've ever had. Being a rice obsessed South Indian, I was initially skeptical if that sprouts curry with bread on the side is going to fill me up...

Total time

90 minutes

Method

  1. Prepare the Sprouts: Heat 2tsp oil in a pressure cooker; add onion and cook until it turns translucent. Next add all the other ingredients and mix well. Add 3-4cups of water and cook for 3-4 whistles or until the beans are completely cooked. If not using a pressure cooker, then cook in the pan for around 30 minutes.
  2. Make Spicy Gravy: Heat 1tbsp oil in a pan, add onions, ginger and garlic, saute until onions turn slightly browned around the edges. Next add ground cumin, coriander, chopped tomatoes and grated coconut. Cook till tomatoes turn mushy. Let the mixture cool a little bit. Then grind it to a paste.
  3. Heat 2tbsp oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and once the seeds start to splutter, add the ground masala paste, red chili powder and turmeric. Cook until oil starts to leave the sides.
  4. Now add the cooked beans along with tamarind pulp, goda masala/ garam masala, salt and little water to get a gravy consistency. Usal is now ready.
  5. To make Misal: Top each serving of Usal with farsan, sev, chiwda, finely chopped onions, cilantro and a squeeze of lemon. Serve with Pav or Chapathi. Enjoy!!
