Moong Sprouts Curry/ Sprouted Green Gram Curry
Hara moong sprouts curry is a protein rich dish that goes well with rice or chapati as well. This is a quick everyday dish which takes 15 minutes to prepare if you have sprouts ready.
Making sprouts is a time taking task. To make sprouts you need to soak moong dal for 6 hours. Then strain out excess water. Cover soaked dal with napkin and keep it in warm place for 6 - 8 hours or overnight.
But if you don't have that much time to make sprouts, these are readily available with any vegetable vendors or supermarkets. So if you get readymade sprouts, this curry takes only 15 minutes to make.
Read my hara moong dal recipe here on blog. With hara moong you can make either dal, soup or curry. I love to make curried dal with this green gram.
Sprouts curry is an healthier everyday food option. You can have a bowl of this for your weight-loss meal. This is low in carb and rich in protein and fiber and hence helps in weight loss. You can simply saute with little to no oil if you are making as diet food.
This is also beneficial for diabetic patients. Read other benefits of green gram lentils here.
