This combination of rice and sprouted legumes (matki) improves the protein quality of the recipe which also provides a good amount of iron, folic acid and vitamin C. We have used matki in this recipe but you can use any other sprouted legume or a combination if you like. This is another good dish for the " tiffin box " to take to work. Your family will love it too.
