Misal Pav

misal pav

 Misal Pav is an iconic Maharashtrian dish that can be served as an anytime meal. A piece of local bread (pav) dunked in a fiery stew made using sprouted beans with a topping of the Indian snack (farsaan) makes for a filling meal. The sprouts stew which forms the bulk of the dish, is also called ‘tari’ or ‘kat’.

The Varieties

Misal Pav is available on the menu in most local eateries in Maharashtra, with different regions having their own versions 

  • Kolhapuri Misal is the fieriest and does not contain pohe. It is served with thick slices of bread, not pav.
  • Puneri Misal varies from spicy to milder taste with more accompaniments or garnishes such as a dry potato curry, chivda (another fried snack) tomatoes, and sometimes even yogurt, along with the regulars like farsaan, onions and coriander.


In 2015, the Misal Pav served at Dadar‘s Aaswad restaurant was named the world’s tastiest vegetarian dish at the FoodieHub Awards in London
