Very filling Misaal

This is a very filling breakfast or snacky dinner which could be eaten either as an evening snack or dinner.   It is very protein rich and very easy to make.   You can top it with a variety of colorful veggies.  This is one recipe where I could make my kids enjoy sprouts without any fuss.  Onion is totally optional here.  If you see the recipe below, it is totally flexible.. We make it quite often now-a-days.

Choice for the main Misaal:

1. Kala chana or chana or peas or soy beans
    Soak the beans overnight and pressure cook

2.  Sprouts of choice (mung/red chori/brown chori/fenugreek/Black urad)
     I usually sprout a mix of them so that it looks colorful.

What you need?

1.  Beans and/or sprouts
2.  garam masala - 1 tsp
3. ginger/chilli paste - 1 tsp
3. coriander powder-1 tsp
4. Cumin powder-1/4 tsp
5. Amchur powder-1/2 tsp

Toppings

Onion (white is good)
tomatoes
coriander leaves finely minced - 2 Tbsp
Green and red capsicum - 1/2 cup (optional)
grated carrot - 1/2 cup (optional)
grated green mango - 1/4 cup  (optional)
grated green apple - 1/4 cup (optional)
Sev -1/2 cup divided use (optional)

How to make?

1. Heat 2 tsp of oil, add cumin seeds, garam masala, pressure cooked beans, 3 cups of water, sprouts and all the powders.  Let it all simmer for 20 mins on medium to low heat.

It should still have lot of water in the pot. 

2.  Cut whatever toppings you need and keep it ready.

3. Serve in a bowl and add the toppings, adjust salt and pepper and server hot.

You could top it with Sev but that is really optional.
