This simple nutritious protein packed curry can be served with rice or chapathi. I have prepared it with sprouted green gram, chickpeas, horse gram, yard long beans and peanuts. Any legume can be used. The protein content, fiber content and vitamin content increases drastically when a grain sprouts. This can be made as khicidi and given to babies. I have posted the mixed sprouts khicidi in baby foods section.
