Spinach & Sprouts

Spinach and Moong Sprouts

A gentle flavor with sweet undertone makes spinach sprouts one of my favorite curries. Tender spinach moistens the moong sprouts as they cook in this recipe.

Spinach with Sprouts

Ingredients:
1 bunch of fresh spinach
1 cup moong sprouts
1 red onion or shallot
2 green chillies, Indian or Thai variety
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 tablespoon, freshly grated coconut
For cumin tadka: 1 tablespoon of peanut oil, 1/4-teaspoon of cumin seeds

Method:
Trim away the spinach roots and finely chop the fresh leaves and tender stems.
Finely chop onion and green chillies.

In a deep-bottomed skillet set over medium heat, heat a tablespoon of peanut oil. Add cumin and saute to fragrance. Add onion and green chillies. Stir-fry to soft-brown. Add the sprouts and spinach. Partially cover the pan and cook, until the leaves have collapsed. Sprinkle turmeric, salt and coconut. Mix well and continue cooking for another two minutes. Serve hot.

Spinach&sprouts is a great workout vratham food and I usually have it as it is without rice or roti. But I know that spinach&sprouts make a nice side dish to dal and rice or roti and a tasty filler for samosas and kachoris.

    A very healthy way to combine spinach and sprouts. Your idea to use it as a samosa filling sounds great!

    HI Indira garu,

    Are you planning to write the food and activity logs on your website everyday (similar to what you have done earlier)?
    Since it starts tomorrow, I do think I am well prepared for the diet plan right away. But I will surely be continuing to work out and would love to be your E-workout partner by sharing my activity log with you.

    Wish you good luck with the WV!

    So Indira, are the sprouts fully cooked in this recipe or are they meant to be crunchy?
