Misal Pav with Homemade Wheat Pav Buns ~~SNC Challenge

Misal Pav is one of the famous street food of Mumbai, my list for street foods goes for a huge list and one among those favourite i have misal pav too. I had a chance to taste this delicious street food during my last trip to India. Misal pav is prepared with many variations sometimes they go for a single legume like white peas or with a combination of mixed beans like white peas,moth beans and green moongdal. For this month's Southern vs Northern Challenge, we (Southern team) have to make this famous misal pav, coz Meena of Random Ramblings challenged us with this incredible street food, while Sherin of Kuk's Kitchen challenged Northern team with Medhu Vada. I know very well that both the teams are gonna rock with their challenges, honestly i was very much excited to see this misal pav, thanks to Meena for giving me a chance and pulling me to make my favourite street food at home.

Unfortunately if you live in abroad, if its comes to chaat items we dont get that much easily the store bought ones, obviously we have to make sometime those delicious street foods from the scratch.Since i dont have neither mixture to top this misal pav nor the pav buns, i prepared myself at home. This time i went for wholewheat pav buns and usual mixture i do prepare once a while for our evening snacks. Meena explained the recipe very well and it was quite easy for me to prepare them.Misal pav is still warm and we are enjoying rite now while am typing the recipe. Am very much happy that finally i could make myself at home one of my favourite street food. A big thanks to the brain child of this event Divya of You Too Ccan Cook for making this event very much interesting and we both teams are enjoying thoroughly this healthy competition.

Homemade Whole wheat pav buns:
1+1/2cups Whole wheat flour
1/2cup All purpose flour
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
1cup Luke Warm water
3tbsp Oil
Few drops of milk

Add the yeast, sugar and salt to the luke warm water, give a stir and let them sit aside for 5minutes until the yeast turns foamy.

Take the flours in a large bowl and add the foaming yeast water and oil together to the flour and knead everything as soft dough.

Arrange the dough in a large greased bowl and keep in a warm place for an hour until the dough doubled their volume..

After an hour, punch down the doubled dough and knead again, make 6 medium sized balls from the dough and arrange one by one in a greased mould and let them side again for an hour in a warm place.

After an hour; preheat the oven to 350F.

Brush the breads with milk and bake in middle rack for 15-20minutes until a golden brown crust forms over the bread...Put off the oven and take off the mould and let them cool.

Misal pav:
2cups White peas (soaked and cooked in pressure cooker)
4nos Onions (chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped)
4nos Garlic (chopped)

1/2tsp Dry mango powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
Mixture for topping
Pav buns
Few chopped coriander leaves

Keep aside few chopped onions,we need it while serving.

Heat a kadai with a table spoon of oil, now saute the onions,tomatoes,ginger,garlic,green chillies until they turns soft,finally add the coconut and cook for few more minutes.Keep aside and let them cool.

Now grind these sauteed veggies as a paste.

Heat again enough oil in a kadai,fry the cumin seeds until they turns brown.

Now add the red chilly powder,coriander powder,garam masala powder,dry mango powder and fry in low flame for few seconds.

Add immediately the grounded paste and cook everything in simmer, finally add enough water to get a gravy.

Add enough salt and cook for 2-3minutes, add now the cooked peas and bring to boil,put off the stove immediately.

While serving, top it with mixture,chopped onions and chopped coriander leaves.

Serve it immediately with pav buns.
