For the day 2 under Meal Ideas, I have a quick Sprouted Moong Dal Sabzi that only takes about 20 mins to get cooked, provided of course you have the sprouts on hand. There was a time when we always stocked moong sprouts. Now we need to concsiously make it and then plan dishes with it if we do not end up eating it as well.
It was to be a paneer day for the kids and Hubby dear refuses to eat it. So had to plan a quick side dish for his dinner. These moong dal sabzi works out pretty much quick even much ahead of your paneer dish and rotis. I was planning to do the paneer dish for today. However looks like it will get shared on another day!
Sprouted Moong Subji
Moong Sprouts - 2 cups
Onion - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 medium
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Red Chili powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp

How to make the Sprouts curry
If you are buying sprouts, then wash and drain it. Else get your own sprouts, clean and ready.
Heat a non stick pan with oil, saute the onions, then add ginger garlic paste. Saute well. Now add the chopped tomatoes, all the spice powders and salt, sprinkle water and simmer till tomatoes turn mushy.
Add the sprouts and combine well. Saute well till the spouts get nicely mixed with the spices. Add a cup of water and cover with lid. Cook in simmer for 10 mins.
Once done, switch off and add lemon juice.
Serve with pulkas.

Thank you Lallie..
A simple but nutritious treat ....nice one
Shreyas used to like sprouts and we used to keep it handy. But he just stopped eating it one fine day and that was the end of sprout making fever. The curry seems to be a good choice to use any leftovers!
I've been wanting to make sprouts...love this healthy dish.
