Mung Sprouts Parantha


This is one variant of using mung sprouts which I had to improvise as my hubby protested about having to eat mung salad which I love to make, where I steam the mung sprouts for short with a pinch of turmeric, add my simple home made chaat masala, chopped onion, tomatoes, diced cucumber, some fresh cilantro, if I have it at home, and lemon juice. But NO! It was too healthy for him. I guess you might know what I am talking about.

So, here is a creation which wasn't bad at all. I steamed the sprouts like I mentioned above and I made the paranthas with rape seed oil (mustard), which added to the flavour a lot. I just mixed the sprouts to the usual dough while preparing it with atta (whole wheat chapati flour).
All you need is the atta, salt, spices of choice, mung sprouts steamed with turmeric and salt for 3-5 minutes with little water, if required.
I could not make these paranthas puff up so much, because of the sprouts, but they still tasted really good. If you want to know exact preparation method, here are two links: one at about.com, the other at Indian Foods link.

It can be eaten with yoghurt raita, daal or any vegetable preparation.

This looks so yummy!!! And it must be
so nutritious an healthy too because you used moon sprouts!!

Did you have a tough time rolling it out?

No, not at all. Since I had coocked it already and then added it to the dough, it was not very watery. And I found it quite easy. there are other parantha with filling which i find harder to roll.

Its my first time here. And I loved the blog. I am going to add it to my blog-roll, and will be a frequent visitor here.

I know it will be really helpful to me, as I have a growing up toddler and also a very fussy-about-food hubby.
