 Sprouted Green Gram Curry 
Sprouted Beans are gaining popularity as a health food, turning up in everything from salads to soups or just as a healthy snack. Their delightful crunch and mild flavor make for an enjoyable snack experience, and are a welcome addition to many meals as an accompaniment or ingredient.
Mung beans, apart from being a good source of protein in the diets of millions of people also contain useful amounts of fiber, potassium, and B vitamins. They contain low levels of fat, cholesterol and sodium.
Today recipe is a mild flavored curry with Sprouted Mung Beans, potatoes  and spices.

List of ingredients:  
  1. 1 cup Green Gram/Mung Beans
  2. 1 cup cubed potatoes
  3. ½ finely chopped onions
  4. 1 cup finely chopped tomatoes
  5. 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
  6. 1 teaspoon Chilli powder
  7. 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  8. 1 teaspoon amchur powder
  9. ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  10. ½ teaspoon sugar
  11. ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  12. ¼ cup grated coconut
  13. Salt to taste 
  1. Soak the beans overnight in plenty of water. Next morning, drain the beans and place them in a clean muslin cloth. Cover the muslin loosely and sprinkle the cloth with water. The beans should sprout the next day. Sprinkle water occasionally if the cloth looks dry.
  2. Grind the coconut to a fine paste. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan/kadai, saute the onions well until translucent. 
  3. Add the ginger garlic paste, chilli, coriander,turmeric,cumin powders, salt and mix well. Add the tomatoes and saute well until oil separates.
  4. To the masala add the sprouted beans and potatoes with a cup of water. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes for the beans to become tender soft. Add amchur powder and sugar and mix well. Garnish with fresh cut cilantro
Serve hot with cut onions and lime for Chappati/rotis or Pulka
Tips: Tamarind extract can be a substitute for amchur powder. Coconut is optional.
