Masti Misal, Bavdhan, Pune

The first thing you notice about Masti Misal, Bavdhan is that this place is really clean. Like not-a-single-fly-clean. Impressive for a small open air restaurant. Also, good quick service.

I ordered the ‘Jhatka Misal  with Dahi.

I was surprised to see the entire bowl covered with dahi. That really defeats the “Jhatka”. The entire purpose of calling it “Jhatka misal” is to emphasize that it is SPICY. As they covered the entire bowl of misal with a layer of dahi / yogurt, they managed to kill the spice. I would have preferred getting the yogurt in a bowl on the side so I could add as much as I need. On the flip side, I probably should have specified the same 🙂

That being said, you wont need dahi. The misal lacked jhatka of any kind. It definitely was tasty and had the tingle of red chili, that i could feel on my tongue, but nothing like the sweat-inducing Newale Misal, Chinchwad  or even the deadly ‘extra spicy’ misal from Khasbag Misal, Baner .

I also had a buttermilk / taak which was cold and rather tasty.

Masti Misal is good option for senior folk, people with delicate digestion, children and those looking for a non spicy misal that you can have without breaking a sweat. Worth a shot.
