Green Gram Vegetable

Firstly buy green gram. Now take about a cup of green grams and soak in 1.5 cup water for a day. after 24 hours remove the water if any left. Take a linen Or cotton cloth. Place all the soaked green gram in the cloth. Wrap the cloth and keep it covered sprinkle some water on the cloth. Allow the sprouts to rest for a day. You will soon see sprouts coming out of green gram. You could continue to keep the grams in wet cloth for one more day if you want long sprouts. Now your sprouts are ready to be used for cooking purpose.

You could make a sprout salad, vegetable, curry anything you like. I can use my sprouts for sevpuri, panipuri Or be it any Indian Chat. Hope you also start using sprouts in your diet.

Today’s Green Gram vegetable is truly my own innovation. This time I used my own gut feeling and my own fusion of flavors. The output was amazing.  Green Gram vegetable tasted superb I ate them with nachni pooris and rice. I had a hale and hearty meal day before.

Tip:

  • You could use matki Or chana sprouts instead of green gram.
  • I have used ready-made Ambadi Masala Powder which is easily available in stores.
  •  You could pressure cook Or boil the green gram before making the vegetable. This will fasten up your process of cooking.
  • Ensure you keep the fire/heat on low mode and use a wide bottomed pan else your vegetable might get burnt from bottom.

Enjoy Green Gram Vegetable!

Have a joyous day and take care of yourself :)

Maria, I made this recipe tonight and my boyfriend and I thought it was just extraordinary, an amazing combination of flavors. (I could not find the ambadi masala so just went up a bit on both the garam and chaat masalas.) I’ve made a few of your recipes now and pretty much plan to work my way through the entire website. Very best wishes to you, and all respect and admiration.

Hi Jan,

Ambadi masala is a ready-made masala I have used which is easily available in India. It’s generally used while making usals, vegetables Or dried sprouts. Hope this helps you.

Love,
Maria
