Sprouted matki curry

I have posted a matki usal earlier. This time, I sprouted matki or moth beans & made a curry dish. I used fresh coconut for the gravy.

Ingredients : Sprouted matki 1/2 cup, 1 onion, 1 tomato , 1/4 cup fresh dessicated coconut, 1-2 green chillies, any  curry powder ( rasam or sambhar powder or sabzi masala powder ...even dhania, jeera, pepper & red chilli powder mix will do )  1/2 tsp , 1/4 tsp grated ginger, a sprig of curry leaves,1/4 tsp haldi, 1/4 tsp powder hing, 1 tbsp oil, 1/2 mustard seeds, salt to taste.

Method : Pressure cook matki ( with 1 cup water to which haldi & hing has been added )  for two whistles.Lower the flame & cook for 5-10 minutes,Put off gas.Let it cool.

Roughly chop onions, hari mirchi, grated ginger  & kadi pattas.Grind them in mixer.Keep aside.

In a kadhai , take oil.Put on the gas & warm the kadhai with oil.Add mustard seeds. When they splutter , add the ground onion -mirchi-adrak - kaddi patta mix .Let it saute in kadhai till raw onion smell goes away.

Roughly chop the tomato & grind it with the coconut.Pour this mix into kadhai.Saute for 10 minutes.Add some water from the pressure cooked matki to this in case ,the onion tomato ground mix starts sticking to the bottom of the kadhai.Add the curry masala ( sambhar rasam or a mix of the two or any other daily veggie spice  powder ) .Mix nicely.Add the pressure cooked matki with the water in which it has been cooked.Add salt.Bring it to a boil.Put off gas. Serve with rice and or rotis.This being of liquid consistency as compared to usal ,goes well with both rice as also chapatis.

My dad simply loved the taste of this curry.He praised my cooking ! In fact, the masala used is daily spice powder made  by my mom ,for sabzis, curries etal !
