Sprouts are the powerhouse of nutrients. Here you will get all the essential nutrients for your body in one food. This is a one of the popular ingredient in many cuisines across the world.
You can make this curry with one type of sprouts, or you can use mixed sprouts, which I use most of the time when I make this recipe. If you like gravy, make this as “sabzi” or you can make it dry if you prefer.
Most of the time, I serve it with chapati or Naans. It will be a better combination with Dal curry and rice also.
