Sprouted moong stirfry

sprouted moong stirfry

When I come back home after work, it's hard to cook for the night from scratch. That's because I want to feed the little one, spend time with him, take him out for a walk etc. So it helps if things are half done and that's one of the reasons I like this recipe so much. Not to mention that it is a healthy side with either chapati or rice.

I can get the sprouted moong ready the night before. Then it's quick to make this delicious and easy recipe.

Here's how to do it:

1 1/2 cups sprouted moong
1 medium onion - chopped
1 medium tomato - chopped
1 tspoon grated ginger
1/4 tspoon turmeric powder
1/2 tspoon cumin seeds
1/2 tspoon cumin seed powder
2 green chillies - slit
1 tbspoon chopped cilantro
salt to taste
1 tbspoon oil
1/2 cup water

Wash and clean the sprouted moong. Heat the oil in a pan and temper it with cumin seeds and green chillies. Then add the ginger, onion and saute for a few minutes till the onions turn soft, but not brown. Then add the tomatoes and let it cook till the tomatoes turn soft.

Add the sprouted moong, cumin powder, turmeric powder, and salt. Add about 1/4 -water and let it cook till moong is cooked. It shouldn't turn mushy though. Add more water if needed.

  12. It's great how basic, traditional dishes can come to one's rescue! Moong usal is one of my favorites, too--I like eating a bowl of chilled leftover usal with a dollop of curd the next day for an evening snack. Great pictures as usual, too!

  13. You've just given me a great idea to trial with my little one! Hope you're doing well.
