Sprouted green moong -1 cup

Mustard seeds or rai – 1/2 teaspoon

Urad dal – 1/2 teaspoon

Whole red chillies – 2 to 3 (broken into pieces)

Salt to taste


Cook the sprouted green moong in an open vessel with enough water, till they are well cooked.  Ensure that they do not become mushy.  Once cooked, drain the excess water and keep the cooked sprouted moong aside.  Heat oil in a pan.  Once the pan becomes hot, add hing and mustard seeds.  Once the seeds starts spluttering, add urad dal and red chillies and saute till it becomes light brown in colour.

Then add the cooked sprouted green moong, turmeric powder and salt.  Mix well all the ingredients.  (If you feel the moong is not fully cooked, here you can sprinkle little water and cook it fully). Cook on a low flame for 3-4 minutes till all the moisture is well absorbed.

Once cooked,  add grated coconut and mix well.  Switch off the flame.  Serve sprouted moong sundal as a naivedyam during Navaratri or a as a healthy snack.

You either steam the sprouts or cook in an open flame.  Do not pressure cook the sprouts, as all the nutrients will be lost and it will get mushy.
