Sprouted Green Gram Sundal/Salad
sprouted moong sundal

Back after an unannounced break with the simplest yet most healthy and as tasty dish. I am guest hosting the Sprouts event of Mom Chef -Sizzling Tastebuds and had made 3 recipes for this purpose – This is not an uncommon dish to people who used sprouted grams – but the beauty of this dish is to sprout your own grams – it is truly amazing the wonder of things when you see the little white stems poking out of the gram only to grow long in a matter of a day!  So give this a shot – you will be doing yourself a favor by eating this incredibly healthy dish, South Indian Shtyle :)

Sprouting green gram requires soaking, draining and rinsing intermittently until such time you see some sprouts – Using a thin wetted towel could help this process -Although I did not have enough foresight to take pictures of the process, I do have some pictures of the dish :)
Ingredients:
1 cup of whole green moong
1/4 cup grated coconut
2 red chilis dry
1/2 tsp of Suvaiyana tadka mix (cumin, mustard, urad dal, asafetida)
1 tsp oil for sautéing the tadka mix
curry leaves to garnish
Method:
Take soaked lentils and steam cook for about 5-7 minutes
Get a sauce pan heated. Add the oil and the sauté mix. Wait to hear the mustard seeds pop add the curry leaves. Sprinkle the coconut and stir once before switching flame off. Serve hot or cold

This is off to the event – please follow link to see other entries and if you have not submitted one already, please do so – I will sprout back with some more dishes this week
