Sprouted Moong Sabzi

Sharing is caring!

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!

How to make the Sprouts curry

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.

  1. 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!
