A proud moment for my food blog. One of my recipe appeared in Saakal Times "Young Buzz" a children's daily circulated in schools in Maharashtra & Goa reaching 30,000 kids. Here's the recipe of "Sprouts Chaat". Thank you all for your encouragement & support always!Chaat is one of the popular street food loved by people of all ages! you will find many vendors all across India serving yummy chats but I have not come across anybody serving "sprouted green moong chaat" Sprouted Moong are considered very healthy as it is rich in proteins.If sprouted moong are available, preparing this recipe won't take much time.I am sure many of you, just like me store tamarind chutney in their deep fridges so that they can enjoy any of their chaats at home within no time.Kids are surely going to love making sprouts and it will be a "fun activity" for them to see the green moong emerge into sprouts.
1 cup sprouts (green moong)
1 medium size onion
1 small tomato
tamarind chutney as needed
salt as per taste
red chilli powder as per taste
2 tsp chopped coriander
4-5 tsp zero number shev
chaat masala as required
Soak moong over night (or 8 hrs) in boiling hot water.In the morning rinse the water, you will notice the moong dal has is plump with light green colour. clean the moong dal with fresh l water. now take a soft cloth and tie this moong dal into the cloth.
some tips: don't tie the cloth very tightly otherwise sprouts may not emerge.Use a casserole to store the moong dal tied in a cloth. keep this casserole in a microwave since the temperatures inside the microwave is warmer (esp during winters & rainy season)
After the sprouts emerge, add these into a mixing bowl, and add chopped onion, tomato, tamarind chutney, red chilli powder, chaat masala & salt as per taste, also add shev and toss lightly.
Serve immediately otherwise the shev will turn soggy.
