Sprouted Kala Chana recipe

Black gram or kala chana is a much more heartier version of chickpeas. It has a comparatively higher fibre content and a higher nutrient value, not to mention it is tastier too!

The way I like to make these is to sprout them! So what I do is, I soak the beans overnight and then rinse them the next morning and place the beans in a colander for around 24 hours.

Sprouted beans are tender and healthier than their non sprouted version.

This is what the beans look like once sprouted.

Kala Chana Recipe

The recipe I use to make this is very simple and it’s more of a dry beans recipe.

I start off by chopping one onion and around 10-12 garlic cloves.

Kala Chana Recipe

I heat up 2 tbsp of ghee in a pressure cooker and add a tsp of cumin seeds and let them crackle. I then add the garlic and let it turn golden brown before adding the chopped onion. Saute the onion till it turns translucent. To this I add a half tsp of turmeric powder and 1 tsp of everest kitchen king masala. I find that this imparts great flavour.

One pot Dal

Dal is that quintessential dish in every Indian kitchen. Usually every family has their own unique spin on a dal recipe and this one is one where all the ingredients for the tadka and the ‘bagar’ is cooked together with the dal.

Here I am using equal parts of the pro nature 5 in one dal alongwith regular moong dal for the meal to be a little more nutritious.

Dal recipe

Wash and soak dal and keep aside. Then cut 2 medium onions, 1 tomato, 10 cloves of garlic, 1 inch piece of ginger and 2 green chillies. You can add less or keep the chilies whole without cutting them if you don’t like the spice

JEERA RICE WITH PEAS

Jeera rice is my favourite rice dish to make. I love the taste of cumin and the addition of peas adds to the health factor of this dish.

I used 1 cup of the the 24 mantra organic sonamasuri rice which I picked up from my local supermarket. This rice is supposedly gluten free.
