The inner foodie in me craves simple and soul food.. Sprouted and curried Moong or better know as Moogachi Usal in Maharashtra. This delicacy can be made with any beans such as Moong or red beans commonly known as matki in India. Generally the beans are soaked in water and allowed to sprout. The sprouted beans are stir fried along with onions, spices and curry leaves in oil. Little water is put to cook the sprouts or alternatively the sprouted beans could be parboiled in water in advance
Ambat varan means a dal which is sweet n sour .It is made in most maharashtrian homes by adding tamarind pulp or kokum for the sourness and jaggery for the sweetness and is further tempered with mustard seeds and garlic. A must have soulfood !
