Sprouted Green Gram Stir Fry - Easy Sprouts Recipe

Hope things are fine at ur end....Here slowly things are getting settled down. Time is running super fast its already been a week since we came here. We are enjoying the weather, settling at new home, knowing new people and the surroundings etc. My favourite times are the ones when we walk in and around the apartment, watching the work progress for each home........Though blaming on mittu for the outside walk, I am just loving those times...:)


I havent tried sprouting though have seen amma doing it several times. After hearing so many goodness about sprouts I also tried to sprout green gram recently. It is so filling for breakfast or can be packed as a snack too. I tried a simple stir fry with it more like sundal as I didnt want to add more masalas/spices instead preferred the mild seasoning.

If you leave it for more hours after soaking, the sprouts will grow longer which will be harder to chew but its your preference.

Types Of Sprouts :
  • When most people think of sprouts , they think of little green, leafy things. But, sprouting can be performed on dozens of different food items.

  • You can sprout nuts and seeds such as peanuts, almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. This can also involve foods that you are already familiar with such as cabbage, chick peas, mung beans and green peas.

  • Sprouts offer nutritional value that is nearly impossible to get from other vegetables and fruits that are purchased from grocery stores.

  • In addition, their nature allows for the easy absorption of nutrients and vitamins enabling our bodies to fight off diseases more effectively.
Happy Sprouting and Healthy Eating!! :)

  29. Now that is what I call healthy food. Planning on trying it out soon! All that is needed is to find a way to add some ormus for that extra blast of life.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Now that is what I call food. Extremely nutritious and no meat added. The next step is figuring out how to get some ormus and it would be perfect. Maybe maca would do but I think it would ruin the taste.
