Misal Pav ( for Sunday Brunch)

Sundays are for fun and lazing around. Some times we go out for lunch and sometimes I make elaborate lunch for the family.

 But what I like the most is certain dishes which I call one meal dishes . They are easy to make and relished by all.

 Misal paav is one of them. It is a very popular Maharashtrian dish . You get different versions of misal like ( Puneri Misal ) and ( Kolhapuri Misal ) . Both are different yet tasty in their own way. And both the versions have their own loyal fans .

 Today though I am going to make Misal my own way cause I too have my loyal fans ( My family members  !!!!!) .

The main part in making misal is that you have to plan this dish at least 2 days in advance . The matki has to be sprouted properly and it takes that much time .

So if you want to make it on a Sunday for brunch like me see to it that you soak matki ( Known as moth in hindi and moth bean in english ) on a Friday night without fail. On Saturday morning drain the water and tie it in a loose muslin cloth and keep it in a warm place. By night it will have started sprouting. Sprinkle some water on the cloth and again leave it over night. On Sunday the matki will be nicely sprouted.

Make the misal as follows and serve it with laadi pav . This dish goes perfectly for a filling brunch for a lazy Sunday. This is my entry for today's Sunday Brunch and event started by Priya and Veena . Under this event we post a dish related to brunch, lunch or dinner on 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month.
