Moong Sprouts Topped with Farsan

Moong Sprouts with Farsan
I try to include Moong Sprouts as a part of our family diet to up the protein quotient. Of course, I often use use the sprouts to make Moong Sprouts Bhaji, Moong Khichdi, Moong Palak Khichdi, or Pesarattu. There is another way I enjoy simple moong sprouts and that is by sauteeing it with some onions and then topping it with Farsan.

Actually, this is my Mom’s recipe. Over the years, I have realised that my mother resorted to very creative ways of ensuring that my brother and I ate healthy, yet tasty food. This recipe, which combines healthy moong sprouts with the notionally unhealthy Farsan, not only satisfied my mother’s wish that my brother and I eat healthy but also satisfied our craving for ‘junk’ food. The best part about this recipe is that it is a great way to transform moong sprouts into a snack.

I like to have this with some cold dahi/curd.
