Green Gram Stir Fry

Friends, Blog hop time is here...this is the 4th week of Blog Hop Wednesdays and this time im paired with Vidya of Kurryleaves...She has a lovely blog with so many delicious recipes..and i love all the clicks and presentation of foods at her blog...This time i decided to make Green gram stir fry/cherupayar thoran which looks very similar with a recipe of my state called as gaja muga bhaja...:-)

I love this recipe a lott during my whole childhood..My mom used to prepare this and after seeing this recipe at Vidya's blog, i just wanna have it soon....The lentils used in this recipe made it a very healthy yet tasty recipe which we can have anytime as snacks or breakfasts...I made lil variation to Vidya's u can check the original recipe from her blog here....:-)


1 Cup Sprouted Green Gram/Cherupayar/Muga/Moong

1/2 Cup Sprouted Bengal Gram/Kala Chana

1/2 Cup Grated Coconut
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
1'' Ginger- minced
2 chopped Green Chillies
1 tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
1 dry Red Chilli
1/2 Cup chopped Onions
1/4 cup chopped Tomatoes
1/2 tsp Mustard Seed
Few Chopped Curry leaves
Few chopped Coriander Leaves
1 Slice of Lemon
Salt to taste


To make the sprouts:-

Wash and soak both the green gram and bengal gram in enough water for overnight.
Clean them again and tie them in a muslin cloth or a clean kerchief.
Keep them in a hanging position for about 8-9 hrs in a dark place.
Sprinkle water in between to keep the cloth damp.
After 8-9 hrs, we can get sprouts..
For longer sprouts,leave it for more hrs by damping the cloth in between...

To make the fry:-

Cook both the grams in water by adding turmeric powder and salt.
Heat oil in a pan/kadhai, add mustard seeds and let it sputter.
Now add red chilli, curry leaves, ginger and onions.
Saute till the onion turns pink and add green chillies, tomatoes and coconut.
Mix properly by adding roasted cumin powder.
Saute for 1min more.
Then add cooked sprouted grams to the above.
Saute for 4-5 min by adding salt if required and garnish with coriander leaves..
Switch off the gas and squeeze the slice of lemon and mix properly...

Serve hot as snack/breakfast or u can even have it as light lunch....enjoy...:-)
