Sprouts and Mushroom Dal - Easy and Quick Side Dish

Sprouts and mushroom dal - prepared with green gram sprouts, mushrooms and moong dals. This dal is similar to my zero oil sprouts dal. Most of the time when I find a new dish for the dinner I try to use healthy ingredients with very less oil. In this recipe, I haven't used any oil and you can cook this dal within 15 minutes. And, this dal will pair well with anything as you like.





Before going to the cooking directions, I will briefly explain how to prepare homemade green gram sprouts.Green gram Sprouts are made from soaked whole green grams called mulaikattiya payaru in Tamil Nadu. The whole green moong dals are soaked in a plenty of water for 4 hours. After 4 hours, the water is drained completely. Then you have to store the soaked green grams in an airtight container or in a white cloth. Close it tightly and keep it in a warm place for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you can get a beautiful homemade sprouts. If the dals are not soaked properly, your sprouts won't taste good. Although, store bought sprouts are delicious, we don't know when it was packed because sometimes it was sticky also.
This dal can be made simply by adding all these ingredients in a pressure cooker and cook for 3 whistles. Then you have to add the required salt, spice powders and finally a handful of fresh coriander leaves. This dal is flavoured with sambar powder and asafoetida powder. For those who want bold flavours in the dal,  you can add sabji masala powder or garam masala instead of sambar powder.
