  • 2 cups sprouted green moong
  • 1 cup onion
  • 1 tea spn ginger paste
  • 1 tea spn garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes
  • 15-20 pieces of paneer
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 " cinnamon
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 green cardamom
  • 1/2 tea spn amchoor powder
  • 1 tea spn chilli powder
  • A pinch turmeric
  • 1/2 tea spn garam masala or goda masala
  • 1/2 tea spn coriander powder
  • 1/2 tea spn cumin powder
  • Oil
  • Salt


  • In a thick bottomed pan or directly in pressure cooker, heat a little oil and add cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaf.
  • Then add onion, ginger-garlic paste and fry for few mins.
  • When the onions are translucent, add chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala(or goda masala), coriander-cumin powder.
  • Fry till a nice aroma comes out.
  • Add tomatoes and fry till they are mushy.
  • Add the moong, paneer, 1 cup water, salt and cook till done.
  • 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.
  • Serve hot with roti/chapati or rice.
