Instructions

  1. Prepare and cook the Matki

    • Rinse the Matki in cold running water.
    • Add the sprouts, diced potatoes, and salt in a pressure cooker. Pressure cook for 2 whistles or for about 6 to 7 minutes. Alternatively, you can boil the Matki in salted water along with the potatoes for about 10 minutes.
    • Once the Matki is cooked, set aside to cool.


  2. Make the Misal Masala

    • In a large pot over medium heat, add the oil. 
    • Next, add the mustard seeds and cook them until they start popping in the pot and you hear a crackling sound as this will mean that the mustard seeds are completely cooked.
    • Then, add the cumin and cook for a few seconds until the cumin gets brown or for about 1 minute.
    • Add the chopped onions and cook until translucent or for about 3 to 4 minutes.
    • Then, add the curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste and green chilies. 
    • Cook until the raw flavor and aroma of the ginger-garlic paste disappears or for about 2 to 3 minutes.
    • Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder and garam masala and cook well, or for about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Combine all ingredients and cook the Misal

    • Add the cooked Matki to the same pot and add 600 ml of water.
    • Let the Misal simmer for another 8 to 10 minutes, until the curry is flavorful and spicy as per your preference.
    Combine all ingredients and cook the Misal
