What is Moth Chaat?

Moth or matki as called in Maharashtra is a very healthy bean. It is very close to green grams (look wise) but is a completely different bean. We all know the nutritive value of beans increases when they are sprouted. Moth chaat is a delectable recipe using sprouted moth beans. It is tangy, with a hint of sweet chutney; it has the bites of crunchy onions, juicy tomatoes, and soft potatoes along with the crunch of sev and freshness of coriander. Moth chaat is a very healthy snack recipe and can be relished even by the weight watchers.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Moth Chaat

The sprouted moth is to be used. In this post, I have shared the method to sprout green grams at home. You can check it to see how to sprout moth at home. It is quite simple, just a bit time taking but believe me homemade is so much better than readymade. Sprouted beans are considered to be boring and bland. So to pep them up I have used a couple of chutneys, and perfect chaat masala. I don’t like to use cucumber for my chaat recipes as it gives me the feel of salad. But you feel free to add it into your moth chaat.

Another healthy chaat recipe on the blog is the zero oil matar chaat recipe. View it here. And then there is a chaat recipe for your cheat day, the aloo chaat recipe. View it here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
