Sprouted Moogh & Meethi Sukke

This is a typical Mangalorean dish, made by sprouting Green Moongh & Meethi seeds. It has a different taste, but a very healthy dish & easy to make. You can make the same dish also by just using Meethi & adding small diced potatoes along with it.

Moongh - 1 cup
Meethi seeds- 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Coconut - 2 tbspn
Haldi Powder - 1/4 tsp
Chillie powder - 3/4 tsp
Salt to taste.


Day 1: Soak Meethi seeds for 6-8 hours. Then tie in a muslin cloth & set it out in sunlight to sprout. Meethi takes longer to sprout & hence we do this a day in advance.

Day 2: Soak Moongh for 6-8 hours & tie in a muslin cloth & set out in sunlight to sprout.

Day 3: Let sprouting continue for a day more.

Day4: In a pan add oil & season with mustard seeds & curry leaves. Then add the sprouted moogh & meethi together & mix everything well. Add required salt & water & cover & cook till it cooks well. The moogh & meethi must not get mushy, so add water as required for cooking.
In a bowl mix well together coconut, haldi & chillie powder & add to the pan & mix well. Cover & cook for 5-7 minutes.
A delicious & healthy sprouted dish is ready!!!
UPDATE: Lot of friends had asked me name of the bean i had used in the below posting called - Kidney bean curry. The Bean is called Double Beans. I picked it up from Nilgiris in Chennai.
