Sprouted Moong Dal Chaat/Sabji/wrap

Sprouted Moong Dal Wrap/Chaat/Sabji

I was prompted to make this dish with the abundant availability of sprouted beans in desi/Chinese stores. Sprouted beans as we know is always considered very very healthy especially for vegetarians whose source of protein is legumes and beans.
This dish can double as a sabji,chaat/snack or wrap it in a roti/Tortialla.Its extremely simple with few ingredients and very quick to make.

2 cups sprouted moong dal

1 tbsp oil/ few sprays of Pam

a pinch of red chili flakes

1 tsp amchoor powder

1 tsp Chaat masala

Juice of half a lemon

a small pinch black salt


1. Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan, when hot add red chili flakes and sprouted Moong.

2. Add about 1/2 a cup of water and cook covered for about 2-3 minutes or until Moong turn tender

3. Once its cooked to tender, add amchoor, chaat masala,black salt and toss well.

4. Sprinkle with lemon juice and remove from heat.

Eat this hot as a chaat snack or make a wrap in a flavored tortilla like tomato/jalapeno add some salad dressing and roll into a wrap, or eat as Sabji with roti's.

With spring fever around ,this would be an excellent brunch before you hit the trails. This is my entry for Mansi dears WBB- Balanced Break event.
