  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 5-6 curry leaves
  • Pinch of asafoetida

  • 3 cups sprouts
  • 6 cups water
  • salt as required
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • cilantro and chopped onions for garnish
  • 1 cup chiwda/farsan


  • Turn on the IP in 'saute' mode. Add oil and add roughly chopped onions, garlic, ginger, tomatoes and coconut. Saute them till they are cooked. This could take around 5 minutes. Turn off the Instant Pot. Remove the mix onto a plate and let it cool a bit. Now transfer it to a blender, add water and make a smooth creamy puree. Again turn on the IP and add oil in it. You need not wash the pot. Temper mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Once they crackle, add curry leaves and asafoetida. Fry for 10 seconds, then add the ground paste along with misal masala, chilly powder, chopped cilantro and salt. Cook for a minute and then add the sprouts and give it all a good mix. Add water, press 'Cancel' and close the lid with vent in sealing position. Cook in manual or pressure cook mode for 12 minutes. When the pressure cooker beeps, let the pressure release naturally. Open lid and stir in the lemon juice and garnish with some more cilantro.
  • Here is how you serve Misal Pav. In a serving bowl, add the cooked misal, throw in some chiwda/farsan, chopped onions and serve it with Bread/Pav. It also tastes great with steamed rice.
