Nutritious Junk food?
Isn't that an oxymoron?
Nope! This one sure has a good blend of proteins, carbs, calcium and it still fits the junk food category. Not convinced? Try it for yourself!!
Misal basically translates to mixture, this dish is very forgiving and you can add or subtract the ingredients as per your liking. Can't go wrong with that!!
1cup mixed whole dals (moong, chole, rajma, double beans, matki etc) soaked overnite
can even use sprouts
1 onion chopped
Green chutney :Blend coriander leaves, green chilli, ginger, salt & lemon juice
Garlic chutney : Blend garlic, red chilli pwd, lemon juice, salt with some water
Tamarind chutney: Boil dates, jaggery & tamarind pulp. Add salt, chilli pwd, jeera pwd & blend.
Chopped coriander leaves
Whisked yogurt with sugar & salt
Sev or gathia
Heat oil, add jeera, hing & curry leaves. Add onion & saute till translucent. Add pressure cooked dal mix and cook a few minutes. Add salt, turmeric, garam masala and water, bring to boil & simmer a few minutes.
Serve in a plate, top with the three chutneys, whisked yogurt, chopped onions, corriander leaves and finally with gathia or any fried mixture. See picture to get an idea!
Do give it a try, I've not given exact measurements for chutneys etc 'coz that can be done as per taste! It can also be served with pav to get misal-pav.
