In the last post I wrote about the Importance of Pulses in our diet, today I am gonna share my recipe which will turn healthy sprouts into tasty and nutritious dish. This dish can be eaten along with chapatis or just have a bowl of this flavoursome yummy moong sprouts.
200 grams of sprouted Moong / Green Gram
2 tbsp oil
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 small chopped tomato
1 tbsp tamarind juice (optional)
2 chopped green chillies (optional)
1-2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp Salt or as per your taste
Chopped fresh coriander for garnishing
How it is done:
Heat the oil in pan. Add the green chillies. The chillies add the much required heat to the dish. Also, when you eat it with chapatis or rotis it balances the flavour. But then again if you don’t fancy spicy food just skip the chillies. Add the ginger garlic paste and let it simmer in oil till oil separates. Then add the tomato and turmeric powder and let the tomatoes melt.
Now it is time for the gorgeous sprouts to hit the pan. Cover the Moong with all the tomatoes and spices. Add the salt and tamarind juice and cover the pan with a lid. Cook on a medium to low flame. Check after five minutes, if it is too dry, add some water. The tasty, tangy, sweet Moong will be ready in next 5-7 minutes. Garnish with coriander and serve with hot rotis/chapatis.
I have a more simple and easy recipe than the above. Steam the sprouts for approximately 10 minutes or till they are done. Don’t overcook or they will turn mushy. Add one pinch of red chilli powder, one pinch of turmeric and add 1tsp of black salt or chaat masala. Alternatively you can add raw tomatoes and raw onions to the above mixture to make a simple, delicious sprout Salad.
