Moong sprouts sabzi recipe with step by step photos – a healthy semi dry curry made with moong sprouts. 

This is again one of those everyday recipes and pretty easy to prepare. One of my mom’s recipes which I often make. Although I have added potatoes in the dish to make it more filling. But you can also make this dish only with moong sprouts.

I always sprout, moong beans at home. though if you have lack of time, then you can buy moong sprouts from super stores. If you are new to sprouting beans, then you can check this post on How to sprout moong beans at home.

Moong bean sprouts are versatile and you can just add a handful to your pulaos, curries, soups and salads. Most of the times I add them to salad, vegetable soup & pulao. Exclusively with them, I make usal, sprouts salad, Sprouts chaat or this sabzi or bhaji as we call in marathi language.

You can Serve moong sprouts sabzi with rotis, parathas or as a side dish. You can have them with bread also. This dish also goes well in the tiffin box.
