GREEN GRAM CURRY WITH STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS AND PICTURES ARE GIVEN HERE

Green gram is also known as Mung Bean which belongs to the plant species in the Legume family. It is rich in protein and vitamin A. Hence adding green grams to our diet at least in a month leads to a healthy life. Making sprouts out of green gram is famous stuff that most people regularly follow. But we may sometimes feel bored to have the same kind of sprouted mung bean. Even I and my husband are fond of eating sprouted green gram but as I said earlier, I feel some sort of boredness of eating sprouted beans daily. So I often prepare this green gram curry with chapati or rice for a change.

Moreover, this is a quick lunch box recipe. You can pack this for your kids’ lunch box since it is a healthy dish. This goes amazing with hot plain rice, chapati, roti, dosa and appams. The only thing you have to do is to soak the green grams overnight. If you forgot to soak them the previous night, then soak in hot water for at least 20 to 30 mins before cooking. This is a super easy-peasy recipe that everyone can try. Even the beginners can prepare this since it has no special things to include. All you have to do is, peel some shallots, garlic pods, chop a tomato. This is the pre-preparation for this recipe. Other than this, it has only regular spices to add. So try out this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you.
