The magic of sprouts unfurls in yet another form in this recipe. Rice and moong sprouts are cooked together with flavourful fenugreek leaves, whole spices, pastes and powders, to get a fantabulous pulao that is both tasty and satiating. The addition of tomatoes does wonders to this recipe because its tartness works beautifully with the mild bitterness of methi giving this Sprouted Moong Methi Pulao a memorable flavour and enticing aroma. Since the pulao is already brimming with flavours, you don’t have to break your head over accompaniments – just a bowl of raita will do!
