Sprouted Green gram steamed cakes in spicy Gravy

Usage of sprouts in day to day food is a must for the sedentary lifestyle. This dish is totally inspired from Nidhiraizada blog.

After seeing Priya jee’s CWS – Mung Beans event decided to prepare this dish.


1 cup – Green gram sprouts
1 no – Onion paste
2 tbsp – Tomato puree
1 tsp – Ginger paste
1 tsp – Garlic paste
½ cup – Curd
1 tsp – Coriander powder
1 tsp – Red chili powder
½ tsp – Turmeric powder
1 tsp – Garam Masala
¼ tsp – Cumin Seeds
2 tbsp – Oil
Salt to taste
Grind the sprouts to fine paste with very minimum water and ¼ tsp salt.
Steam the paste for 10 mins or until cooked.
Cut it into small pieces. In non stick pan heat 1 tbsp oil fry the cakes till golden brown. Take it out and keep aside.

Add remaining oil once hot add cumin seeds and onion paste sauté well; add ginger and garlic paste fry till golden brown.

Add tomato paste, coriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, salt mix well and add yogurt.
