Sprouted Moong Chaat

How about a tangy healthy chaat for breakfast or snacking? Sounds good, isn't it. I have used Moong sprouts here. You can use any sprouts like Matki (Moth beans), Kala Chana (Black chickpeas), Kabuli Chana (White chickpeas) or Chowli (Black eyed peas). There is an amazing increase in nutrients in sprouted foods when compared to the dry ones. In the process of sprouting, the vitamins, minerals and proteins increase substantially with corresponding decrease in calories and carbohydrate content. Now, enough of my gyaan, we'll kickstart the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 cup steamed moong sprouts
1 small chopped tomato
1 small chopped onion
Coriander / Cilantro
Lemon
2 drops of oil
Cumin seeds for tempering
Chilly Powder
Coriander Powder
Chaat Masala / Amchur powder
Usal Misal masala (optional)
Salt to taste (if required)

Steam the sprouts. Heat 2 drops oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds, red chilly powder and coriander powder. Toss in the spouts. Sprinkle some Usal-misal masala if you have, otherwise skip it.
Remove from heat and add the tomatoes, onions and coriander.
Sprinkle generous amount of lime juice and chaat masala.
If required, add salt.
Healthy sprouts chaat is ready! Kudos to guilt free snacking!!!
