Missal pav recipe which I m sharing is not that spicy however you can adjust the spice according to your taste.
Ussal For Missal Pav:
Heat 3 tablespoon oil in a kadhai.
Put pinch of cumin seeds.
Once cumin seeds starts cracking add chopped onion and stir.
Allow onion to cook till light brown.

Now add boiled white peas to it and mix.
Add salt as per your taste.
Add garam masala. I m using here 2 tablespoon sambhar masala. You can use kolhapuri masala or malvani masala. You can also make it with only coriander and red chilly powder ( add 1 teaspoon more coriander powder and red chilly powder) if you don’t want to use other masala.
Mix it properly and let it cook for more 2 mins and add water to it as per your consistency.
