Mixed Sprouts Curry

I usually soak moong dal to sprout, so that we can consume it raw in a salad or in cooked form. My kid loves cooked sprouts and my husband likes it raw. This came to my mind when one day I soaked all the pulses to sprout and so instead of adding this in salad, I made a curry out of it which was not only delicious but full of fibres, vitamins, nutrients and it goes on.... (of course you all already know about its benefits)

With all the mixed sprouts, this dish tastes excellent and this has become a regular dish whenever somebody comes over for lunch or dinner. This is so easy to make, just that we should be ready with the sprouts.

In this curry, I have ground tomatoes along with coriander leaves and so it tasted yumm..Sprouts are readily available in the market but freshly sprout it at home and you can see the difference.

  1. Moong Sprouts- ½ Cup
  2. Chana dal Sprouts- ½ Cup
  3. Horse Gram Sprouts- ½ Cup
  4. Green Peas Sprouts- ½ Cup
  5. Onions (sliced)- 2 nos
  6. Tomatoes- 2 nos

  10. Garam Masala Powder- 1tsp
  11. Red Chilli Powder- 1 tsp
  12. Turmeric Powder- 1tsp
  13. Coriander Powder- 1 tsp
  14. Oil- 2 tbsp
  15. Mustard seeds- 1tsp

  1. Mix all the sprouts in a bowl and pressure cook for upto 3 whistles.
  2. In a kadai heat oil and splutter mustard seeds, in this add the sliced onions and green chillies.
  3. When the onions turn translucent add the ginger and garlic paste and stir well till the raw smell disappears.
