Sprouted Math (Mooth) Curry

  • 2 cups sprouted math ( mooth lentil )
  • chopped red / green chilli
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • pinch of hing
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp oil

  • Soak the math overnight and sprout them.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, chillies and hing.
  • When the mustard seeds crackle, add the garlic paste. Stir for a minute.
  • Now add turmeric powder, cumin powder and garam masala.
  • Add 2 cups of water.
  • When the water comes to a boil, add the sprouts.
  • Add salt and cook covered on a low flame.
  • When the math grains are soft, turn off the heat.
  • Ready to serve.

Serving Suggestions:
Can be served with rice or chapatis.

  • I have added 2 cups of water for 2 cups of math because I wanted it to have a little gravy. If you want it dry, add less water.
  • Some people like to add onion alse. For that, add it before adding the garlic paste and cook it till golden brown and follow the same procedure.
  • You can use 'goda masala' - a maharashtrian speciality - instead of garam masala for a different taste.
