Sprouts chaat

Cooking Time Required: 5-1o mins
Cost of preparation: 10-15 rupees


  • Green moong( 50 gm)
  • bengal gram ( 30 gm)
  • lemon (1 nos)
  • cucumber (half, medium size)
  • onion (1 no., small)
  • tomato (1 no, large)
  • mint (pudina leaves)
  • green chilli ( 1 no.)
  • black salt ( to taste)
  • pepper powder ( 1/2 tsp)
  • cumin-chilli powder (1/4 tsp)
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Preparation: Soak the green moong and bengal gram overnite. Wash in the morning and keep in a germinator. If the germinator is not available, keep the pulses in a normal kitchen colander(used for draining excess water) or put in a muslin cloth and hang it( my mon still uses this method ) . Basically, the germinating vessel should be such that it allows free circulation of air.

Allow for 10-12 hours of germination time( this will vary according to the time of the year, i.e., germination is much faster during the hot summer months.

Cooking: Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the pulses, and stir fry for about 4-5 mins. Mince the tomato, cucumber, chilli, mint leaves and onion into very small pieces. Transfer all the ingredients to a mixing bowl, add the black salt, lemon juice, pepper powder, cumin-chilli powder. Mix well and you have a healthy snack time option.

Alternately, instead of stir-frying the pulses in olive oil, the oil can be directly added to the mixing bowl.
