Spicy Sprouts

I love to buy mung sprouts from my store. I always have huge plans on how I will use it but I end up making this sprouts curry. Sprouts spoil very easily so I make it a point to use it within a day or two. The curry is very simple, very healthy and very tasty. Try it next time you have a bag of sprouts or some leftover from other recipe for a quick snack.



Ingredients:
- 1 packet sprouts
- 3 dried red chilies
- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 tsp urad dhal
- 1/2 tsp hing
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp oil
- salt to taste

Method:
1. Set a wide sauté pan at hight heat. Add the oil and mustard seeds. Once it pops add the urad dhal. Tear your dried chilies and add it to the oil. Saute for a few seconds. Now add hing and turmeric powder. Cook for 10 more seconds.
2. Now add the sprouts. Stir it continuously and try to keep the heat high. If you reduce the heat sprouts will start releasing water and it will become mushy. Cook this for 3 minutes. Add salt and give it a quick mix. The sprouts will be slightly limp but it will should still be crunchy.

You can eat this as is as a healthy mid afternoon snack. I like this better then the raw sprouts.
I am sending this to Priya's Easy N Tasty - Let's sprout event.
