How to make the recipe?
  1. You can make mung bean sprouts home Or buy them from market. I made them home. Pressure cook uptil 3 whistles Or until tender. Take 1 onion and place them on fire as you see below. Let the onion be black and brown completely from all sides.
  2. Repeat the same process with coconut. I have placed fresh coconut on the fire until completely brown from all sides.
  3. Let the onion and coconut cool down. Chop them into small pieces. Combine chopped onion, coconut, fennel seeds, 1 tbs cumin seeds, white sesame seeds, black sesame seed and 2 chilies. Grind to a smooth paste add water if required. Keep this aside.

  5. After 30 secs add chopped onion.
  6. Now add chopped tomatoes.
  7. Put all spices (turmeric, red chili powder, ambadi masala, coriander seed powder, 1 tbsp fennel seed powder, garam masala powder)
  8. It's time to add onion-coconut paste. Saute for 4 to 5 mins ensure it doesn't stick at the bottom.
  9. Now add the boiled sprouted mung bean to it. Add a cup of water Or as consistency required.
  10. Simmer for another 7 to 8 mins on low heat. Add black salt / salt. Check the taste add more salt and spice if required. Switch off the gas garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with rotis, parathas Or steamed rice.
