Misal Pav is a popular breakfast dish for the city’s core Maharashtrian community. One of the finest examples can be found at Aaswad Upahar, the 30 year old vegetarian restaurant in Mumbai’s Dadar. Consisting of a curry made with mung bean sprouts and pulses, it is topped with crunchy fried gram flour, farsan, chopped raw red onions and a splash of lime juice. Not too spicy and with a home cooked feel, this dish is best served with pay, the soft local bread. Hugely popular amongst the locals, this dish offers wonderful textural colors and contrasts with a flavor to match.
