It has been a while I posted on the blog, thanks for having stopped by though. Last couple of days there isn’t much of heavy cooking and have been preparing some simple easy dishes. I had prepared this simple moong sprouts stirfy, very healthy and nutritious, prepared in Indian style, mentioning it because when it comes to mung sprouts, people tend to think of Chinese dishes. This used to be our snack as kids, as we were not allowed to have too much of chips or chocolates or eating anything out. This is a perfect dish if someone is on a diet plan !
3 cups moong sprouts
1 1/2 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
2 –3 small green chilies, chopped
1 strand of curry leaves
1/2 cup onions, chopped
salt to taste
pinch of turmeric
Pre –Prep: To make the sprouts, soak moong beans in water for 6 –8 hours. Then drain the water and keep the soaked mung in closed container. Rinse with cold water after every 6 –8 hours. Sprouts will be ready in 36 – 48 hours
1. Heat oil in a large pan. Add mustard seeds, as they splutter, add curry leaves, chilies and onions. Sauté
2. Add the moong bean sprouts and saute for couple of minutes till cooked. Sprinkle little water if required
3. Add salt and turmeric and stir for few more minutes.
