Mung ki Sabzi | Green Bean/Gram Side-Dish

They are small, ovoid in shape, and green in color
They are an excellent source of PROTEIN
And they are delicious
Not to be confused with french green bean.
Welcome to my blog again. Here I am, with another healthy side dish. You can have this with Roti (Tortilla) or Rice or Bread. It is full of nutrition and yumminess! :-D And I really have nothing much to say about this dish except for how simple it is to make and how good it tastes!

You'll need -
1. Mung / Green Gram - 100 grams / 1 cup
2. Boiled & cut potato - 1 medium sized
3. Tomato - chopped - 1 medium
4. Green Chili - 2 finely chopped or sliced from the middle
5. Ginger paste - 1 teaspoon
6. Salt - 1 teaspoon or as per your taste
7. Red Chili Powder - 1 teaspoon (optional)
8. Asafoetida / Hing - 1/4 teaspoon
9. Cumin Seeds - 1 teaspoon
10. Garam Masala Powder - 1 teaspoon (optional)
11. Turmeric / Haldi powder - 1 teaspoon
12. Cooking Oil - 1 teaspoon
13. ONIONS - 1 (tastes good if you use onions. I was out of them so I skipped)
14. WATER - enough to cover the sprouts and cook. (around 1 and half cups)

1. Soak the beans for 5-8 hours. If it sprouts, all the more better!
2. In a Rice Cooker (Or any pressure cooker) (Or any pan), heat the oil. Add the cumin seeds, garlic, chili, onions & sauté for 1 minute. 
3. Add salt, red chili powder, garam masala powder, turmeric / haldi, asafoetida / hing and mix well.
4. Then add the potato & tomato and satué for 1 minute.
5. Add the sprouts and mix well.

6. Finally, add the water, give it a nice mix & close the cooker lid and let it cook until 5-6 whistles. If you are using a pan, close the pan with a larger plate or a lid and let it cook for about 15-20 minutes. Occasionally, pick the lid up & stir everything together and close again.
 Healthy Sprouts / Mung Sabji ready!
