A traditional Maharashtrian preparation made healthier using an assortment of sprouted pulses. Sprouting not only increases the protein content but also makes the dish easier to digest and richer in calcium. While some methods of preparation use kokum, we have used tomatoes for tang so that it can be made easily by everybody, even in regions where kokum is not available.
- Heat the oil in a pressure cooker and add the cumin seeds and asafoetida.
- When the cumin seeds crackle, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Add the tomatoes and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the dry garlic chutney, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring once in between.
- Add the mixed sprouts, turmeric powder, salt and 1½ cups of water, mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- Garnish with onions and coriander and serve hot with lemon wedges.
