Sprouted Matki usal

Matki or moth beans are used to make a tangy usal or beans curry.When any beans like matki are sprouted,it is all the more beneficial for health.

I have brought a sprout maker recently online .I make sprouts in that.Though ,I would hardly ever advise anybody to buy it as it occupies space & is not that useful.Beans can be sprouted in thin cloth as this post shows.

Ingredients : 1/4 cup moth beans,1 tomato,1 onion,2-3 green chillies,1/2 " grated ginger, 1/2 tsp any readymade sabzi masala powder,1/4 tsp mustard seeds,1/4 tsp curry patta powder ( optional ) ,1/4 tsp haldi,1/4 tsp hing,2 tsp oil,salt to taste.

Method : Sprout the moth beans .Keep aside.

Clean & finely chop onion,tomato & green chillies.Take kadhai & put oil.Put on gas.After oil heats up ,add mustard seeds.When they crackle,add chopped onions & grated ginger followed by chopped green chillies.Saute them in the oil.Add haldi & hing.Now add the sprouted moth beans .Mix nicely.Add chopped tomatoes & curry patta powder ( optional ).Mix nicely.Add readymade sabzi masala powder.Add salt to taste.Add half cup water or less, if dry version of curry is preferred. Now pressure cook all this beans veggie mix upto 2 whistles.Put off the gas.

After the cooker has cooled,remove the matki usal.Serve it with chappatis and or rice.

I prefer watery version as it can be mixed with rice as well in place of dal or sambhar or rasam.For carrying in tiffin box to office,a drier version would be convenient to avoid spillage.

I had curry patta powder & so I used it.Alternatively,curry pattas can be used.
