A great snacking option with Matki Sprouts.
Matki, a very common sprout in maharashtrian cuisine. Generally used in making curry, i loved eating it simply boiled. I was introduced to this recipe during my childhood. Once in a while we would eat this sprouts masala in breakfast. Be it matki, moong, chana, vatana.. same recipe can be used with any of these sprouts. It comes out yummy and of course absolutely nutritious.
- Matki Sprouts : 2 cups, sprouted and boiled
- Onion : 1, finely chopped
- Tomato : 1, finely chopped
- Green Chilly : 1, finely chopped
- Coriander leaves : a small bunch, finely chopped
- Pepper powder : Half Teaspoon
- Jeera Powder : Half Teaspoon
- Salt as per taste
- Lemon : a few drops
I generally boil or cook Matki sprouts open. Not in pressure cooker. Coz I like it al dente. Meaning cooked but firm for biting. So i guess i boiled it for roughly 7 minutes.
Next is mix the chopped onion, tomato, coriander leaved, chillies and the spices well.
And sprinkle the mix on the boiled sprouts in bowls. Squeeze lemon juice on top, a few drops or as per the liking. Alternatively, if available you can add chaat masala as well. And mix it all nicely and serve.
And the dish is ready. Simple, quick and of course healthy and yummy. Yumminess is what I seek in every dish that I make at home.
BE YUMMY. BE HEALTHY.
