Green Moong Daal Dry Curry | Mooga Usli | Moong Sprout Ki Sabji

Moong beans, are not only a good source of protein, but also they are very rich in fibre, potassium and B- vitamins. They contain low levels of fat, cholesterol and sodium. Sprouted Moong is also rich in Phosphorous, which is necessary for healthy bones and teeth. This is the reason doctors also advice sprouts for babies and children of all age. Here is a very tasty recipe of sprouted moong, Mooga Usli.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

  • A pinch of turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste

  • Soak the moong overnight or for about 8-10 hours in enough water. Drain water the next day and allow it to sprout by keeping it for another 6-7 hours without water. Moong gets sprouted very nicely. Now add water and keep the Moong aside for one more hour.
