I guess I will dedicate this to my friend Ravi A(Sunray-as he is called), who has been asking me to make some protein dishes. This one provides good amount of protein and you can eat this either for breakfast or dinner with a glass of orange juice.
Sprouts have been described as power foods and a boon to mankind from ancient days. Sprouts bear the largest relative amount of nutrients per unit of intake of any food known to man. They have enough first - quality proteins to be classified as "complete". More importantly, sprouts are totally chemical-free, leave no waste, are delicious when raw and are super low in calories.
2 cups of moong/green gram sprouts
1 cup murmura (optional)
1/2 onion, chopped
2 green chillies, optional
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp jeera
1 tbsp green chutney
1 tbsp saunf (fennel seeds)
a pinch of ginger powder
1/2 tbsp chat masala
1/2 cup yogurt, sweetend
red chutney, as needed
- Heat oil in a pan.
- Add jeera, saunf to the oil and let them splutter.
- Add chopped onions and cook them until light brown.
- Add green chillies, moong sprouts and cook them for a minute or two. If you cook more, they will become hard to eat.
- Soak murmura in water for a minute and add them to the above mixture.
- Add green chutney, ginger, chat masala and salt and cook everything together for a minute. Remove from heat.
To serve, you can either eat them as it is or you can make behl this way by arranging the cooked moong in a plate, add red chutney and sweetned yogurt (add sugar to yogurt). Garnish with both coriander and sev.
Sprouts are the best "living food". In fact, they are so alive that they are still growing when you eat them.
