Sprouted Moong Pulao

Sprouted Moong( Green Gram) Pulao - I made this up...........why because - I had these stuff handy& had to make a quick fix dinner for kids ........................Thanks to the Moong that I had soaked and forgot to cook ,therefore they sprouted:) Then there was left over rice from lunch..........Other ingredients I guess are just part of every kitcken. Somethings just fall into place when you least expect them to....necessity definitely is the mother of invention:))

Over to the recipe..............


1 Cup - Sprouted Moong
11/2 Cup rice cooked
1 Medium onion finely chopped
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
3 Tbsps Oil
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 Tsp Jeera
A pinch of Hing/Asafoetida
1/2 Tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 Tsp Chilly powder
A pinch of Garam masala
1-2 Dry red chilly
A few curry leaves
Salt as appropriate
Water as required

Step 1: Boil Moong in a pot some water and a little salt. Keep water minimal and once done,do not throw the water.Do not over cook,the moong should be crunchy to bite.
Step 2 : Heat oil in  a wok,add mustard seeds,jeera,hing whole red chilly - stir lightly. Add the onions and curry leaves.Saute well. Now add ginger garlic paste,turmeric,red chilli powder and the garam masala & fry until the raw smell fades away.
