Notes

 
This recipe is made by using Moth Sprouts. But you can also use Green Lentil Sprouts too. Sprout the lentils for 2-3 days before making Misal Pav.
You can adjust the flavors as per your taste. I have made it less spicy but depending upon your taste, you can adjust the flavors.
Usually Tamarind is also an important ingredient. But as I have added diced tomatoes that were very tangy, I have skipped Tamarind paste in the recipe.
People often use Jaggery for a little sweetness in the recipe. You can also add Maple Syrup, Sugar, Sweetener, or Brown Sugar, etc in the recipe.
If you want to get the authentic flavor of Misal Pav, then I recommend you to use Goda Masala. This is different than the Garam Masala. It helps in giving the flavor similar to the Misal Pav served by the street vendors.
