The other day I was chatting with my old friend, who now lives in the UK. As he is living on his own, I was very interested to know what he eats. I was really impressed when he said he is cooking for himself and not the simple ones, mind you! He said he makes Sambar, Mutton curry, Biryani, and a lot more.
He even sets his own curds for curd rice. He said living in a different country on his own, he finds ample time to spend on cooking when eating out, every day is not a good option. I was totally taken in and even invited him to do a guest post for Bachelor's corner, which he said he will.
So when bachelors are able to cook up such elaborate dishes, this simple and healthy sprout moong dal pulao, would be a chore! All you need is to get the moongs sprout and if they are available ready-made, you can just include them in the rice and get a pulao for yourself. This one-pot meal is very simple and gets done fast. I strongly recommend this, when you are in a hurry to fix a quick dinner but still want it to be healthy! Check out How to Sprout, for the sprouting process!
