Dal and Lentils,

Sprouts Curry / Sprouts Sabzi

September 26, 2018 Motions and Emotions 3 Comments

Sprouts curry or Sprouts sabzi is an easy and tasty side dish to go with roti or paratha. You can also pair sprouts curry with rice. In my last post I have shared How to make sprouts at home?, did you check it?
I have prepared mixed sprouts curry and my mixed sprouts contain green moong, moth bean and horsegram. You can replicate the same recipe using your choice of sprouts. It could be a single variety like moong sprout or it could be mix of 2 or 3 sprouts.

You can prepare the sprouts curry in two ways. Here I have mixed all the masalas and later added the sprouts and altogether I have cooked in pressure cooker. However, you can do other way.

Alternatively, you can boil the sprouts in pressure cooker and add them to your cooked spices. Either way will not make any change to the taste of the curry.

My better half does not prefer lot of healthy stuff😐. I meant to say he does not prefer to eat raw sprouts which me and daughter like in the form of simple chaat.

I do not make an elaborate sprout chaat normally. I wash the sprouts and add some chopped onions, sprinkle black salt and pepper powder and squeeze some lemon on top. Tadaa! Our quick sprout chaat is ready. I will make a separate blog post on sprout chaat which is famous these days.

I knew sprouts curry would be hit at my house as He relish dal, lentils and legumes with roti, paratha or naan. Do you have similar family members at your home too? Then here is some recipes with lentils and legumes, check them out.

Sprouts Sabzi is a good side dish however, you can just have a bowl of sprouts curry topped with chopped onion, green chilli, coriander leaves in lunch or dinner just the way we Bengalis have a bowl of ghugni.
