How to Make Sprouted Moong Bean Raita

  • Soak moong beans overnight in about 4 cups of water. Drain this the next day but reserve the water (it's very nutritious).
  • Wrap the beans in a fine-weave cheese cloth, sprinkle water on it and keep it aside for about 24 hours. The next day they should have sprouted.
  • Cook the beans in (reserved) water with a little salt to taste and 1/4 tsp turmeric powder.
  • Cook till tender, but take care not to overcook.
  • Whip yogurt, add chopped tomatoes, onions and grated carrot.
  • In a small saucepan, heat oil for about a minute on medium and add the mustard seeds.
  • Cover immediately and reduce heat.
  • When the mustard seeds begin to crackle, add cumin and asafoetida and chopped green chillies. The cumin will crackle a bit.
  • Turn off heat. Pour this seasoning into the mixed yogurt/tomato.
  • Add the cooked moong beans, salt to taste and garnish with finely chopped cilantro leaves.
