Let’s try making khichdi with an interesting twist! Here, normal moong dal is replaced with sprouted moong, and the effect is awesome.

Add to this a tongue-tickling masala of coconut, coriander seeds, spice powders etc. and you get a fabulous Sprouted Moong Khichdi, which can be enjoyed as a one-dish meal with just a cup of curds and maybe pickles.

The best part is that this recipe is easily made using the Microwave oven, so you can make it any time, even on a busy day.
