Rejuvenating Sprouts

Sprouts, which are germinated seeds are living foods that are highly nutritious and can be prepared very easily to enhance any recipe. They are good sources of proteins, vitamins, trace minerals and low in calories. They aid in digestion, reduce stress, boost immunity, prevent cancer and hydrating to the body.

Whole Masoor sprouts

I usually prepare a simple sautéed side dish using sprouts which I also enjoy as a snack along with a cup of hot chai. You can even substitute the whole masoor sprouts here with moong sprouts.

Sautéed Sprouts


Sprouted Whole Masoor – 1/2 cup
Yellow/White Onion – 1, small sized, thinly sliced
Tomato – 1, medium sized, finely diced
Dry roasted Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
Canola oil – 1 tsp

Sautéed whole Masoor sprouts


In a pressure cooker at medium high, pour oil and as soon as it warms up, add the sliced onion and let cook for a few seconds until just lightly softened. Add tomatoes, salt and half cup water and cook them for a few minutes until mushy. Add the sprouted masoor. Also mix in red chilli powder, turmeric powder and coriander powder. Mix well and pressure cook for just 5 minutes or less. Open the lid and cook for a further 3-5 minutes and serve. You can also sprinkle a little bit of fresh lemon juice if desired.

  1. As Salamu Alaikum Mona,

    Wonderful Blog ! Thanks for it. I intend to extend my thanks, since i found your blog to be very helpful. Am newly married. I was aware of kitchen before marriage. But the dishes here at my sasuraal are different {though both my families belong to Hyderabad}. Since my dishes are scrutinised by my in-laws, i try my best not to give an oppurtunity. Yet i fail. Your blog is very helpful to me now. Even the receipes i know, i refer them first at your blog and then cook. Keep up your good work. I hope and wish your recipes help every new bride 🙂 Now, i wish to gain perfection in cooking to reach out my husband’s heart.

  2. All my best wishes to you Mona for 2010!
