sharing a recipe of mixed sprouts curry which i often make as a side dish to go with chapatis. the recipe is a no frills homely recipe. you can also make this curry with only mung bean sprouts or moth bean sprouts (matki). the curry has a thin gravy or ‘tari’ as we call in hindi. you can also make the sabzi dry if you prefer.

here i used sprouted moong beans, moth beans and black chickpeas. you could use a mix of any legumes. you do need to make the sprouts a couple of days before. you can read this posts on sprouting mixed beans and moong beans. ½ cup of mixed beans will yield about 2 cups of mixed sprouted beans. if using 4 or 5 different types of beans, then take equal quantities of all beans.

serve this simple nutritious mixed sprouts curry with chapatis, phulkas and rice bhakri. also goes well with bajra roti or jowar roti. the curry also goes well with whole wheat bread.

    • thanks a lot jesse 🙂. happy cooking.

  2. Can you recommend a cooking procedure to use in place of a pressure cooker?

    • tanya, in a pan add 1.5 to 2 cups water and the sprouts. cover and simmer till the sprouts are cooked. then strain them and use the cooked sprouts in making the curry.

  3. Good yummy

  4. Hi Dassana,

    I am a silent follower of your blog..nicely explained with each step photos..

    I hav one doubt..if we discard the water in which the dals are kept for sprouting,whether the nutrients will be lost? ?

    • For sprouting very minimal water or no water is used. Its only for soaking the legumes. The water after soaking has to be discarded as they contain phytates. The beans swell up and if you keep these soaked beans wrung in a muslin or in a covered bowl, they start sprouting.
