The moong sprouts rice is what you could call a ‘one-kadhai meal’! of course, it takes a little help from the handy microwave oven. Rice tossed with a wonderful assortment of spices and paneer, is layered with a toothsome curry of nutritious moong sprouts cooked with a semi-spicy masala paste, and baked in an oven to enhance and lock in the myriad flavours and aromas contributed by the ingredients.
