Recipe for easy to do Moong Sprouts Curry with coconut milk. Serve with rice or chapati. Recipe with video.
This Moong Sprouts Curry is an easy recipe that can be put together in under 30 minutes. Perfect for that busy weeknight dinner. There is no grinding of masalas etc… in this recipe making it perfect for bachelors to try. I have used canned coconut milk in this recipe to keep it simple.
Home made moong sprouts are preferred but if you are hard pressed for time, readymade works just fine. Here is the recipe to make sprouts at home.
Moong sprouts, Horse Gram sprouts, Moth sprouts etc… can be used for making this recipe. Sometimes I use mixed sprouts too. I cook the sprouts in the pressure cooker briefly to make it a little soft. Alternatively the sprouts can be steamed and used in the recipe too.
I have used Bolsts curry powder for making this recipe. I have given the link for buying the same below. Having said that, you can use your favorite curry powder and that’s totally fine.
