A spicy and tangy sprouted green moong and paneer masala gravy that goes well with chapatis or rice.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups sprouted green moong
  • 1 cup onion
  • 1 tea spn ginger paste
  • 1 tea spn garlic paste
  • ½ cup tomatoes
  • 15-20 pieces of paneer
  • 2 cloves
  • 2" cinnamon
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 green cardamom
  • ½ tea spn amchoor powder
  • 1 tea spn chilli powder
  • A pinch turmeric
  • ½ tea spn garam masala (or goda masala)
  • ½ tea spn coriander powder
  • ½ tea spn cumin powder
  • Oil
  • Salt
Instructions
  1. In a thick bottomed pan or directly in pressure cooker, heat a little oil and add cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaf.
  2. Then add onion, ginger-garlic paste and fry for few mins.
  3. When the onions are translucent, add chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala(or goda masala), coriander-cumin powder.
  4. Fry till a nice aroma comes out.
  5. Add tomatoes and fry till they are mushy.
  6. Add the moong, paneer, 1 cup water, salt and cook till done.
  7. I cooked the mixture of 2 whistles. The paneer became quite soft(It was quite hard to begin with). So if you have a soft paneer, I suggest adding it at the end after the moong is cooked.
  8. Serve hot with roti/chapati or rice.
