Sprouted Pulses Curry - Gujarati Style

This was one of the yummiest and most simple recipe which I made for this month's remake for the  potluck-party-cyber-style  . I was paired with  Jagruti and she had made this delicious gujarati bean sprouts curry for the party which I had to remake. Loved this mildly flavoured pulses dish a lot.

For sprouting the pulses . Wash the pulses thoroughly and soak them in water for 6 to 8 hours.Drain out the water and tie the pulses loosely in a muslin cloth for 6 to 8 hours again.By this time you will see small sprouts on the pulses.The pulses are now ready to be used.If they have not sprouted properly you can again soak them for some more hours in water.Also instead of roasting the groundnuts for garnish I sauteed them and used them  whole . This gave more crunchiness to the curry.






Ingredients :

1 cup .....................sprouted mixed pulses ( moong, matki, masur, rajma etc )
1 tsp......................cumin seeds
1 tbsp................... crushed green chilli garlic paste
1/2 tsp..................turmeric powder
1/2 tsp....................garam masala powder
1 cup ....................milk
1/2 cup.................groundnuts ( sauteed in 1 tsp of oil)
2 tbsp..................chopped coriander
2 tbsp.....................oil
water
salt


Method :


In a grinder coarsely grind mixed pulses.

In a pan heat oil and splutter jeera.

Add crushed chilli garlic paste and stir till golden in colour.

Now add the ground pulses and stir fry for few minutes.

Add all the masalas and salt and mix well.

Add milk and water and cook till done with lid covered.

If the curry becomes very thick you can add more water.

Garnish with sauteed groundnuts and chopped coriander.

Have this delicious curry with rotis .
