This dish is very simple to make but very healthy and tasty.

2 cups mixed sprouts
1 medium sized onion
1 medium sized tomato
a few curry leaves
a pinch of haldi
Chilly powder and salt as per your taste.

Soak legumes like moong(green gram), matar(peas) ,chana (bengal gram) etc. for 4-5 hours. Then tie them in a thin cloth and allow them to sprout. (Keep the cloth wet by sprinkling water occasionally for better results). 

I have used moong, moth, chana, matar, green chana and methi(fenugreek) seeds. Adding methi gives a nice flavour.                                                                                                             
                                                                Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, curry leaves and a pinch of hing. Now add the chopped onions and saute till they become transparent. Add chopped tomatoes and salt. Fry till the water of the tomatoes almost dries up. Add haldi and chilli powder. Mix well and add the sprouts. Add a little water and cover and cook till the sprouts become soft.

This goes well with rotis and also rice.
This can also be served garnished with finely chopped onions, corriander leaves and fine sev.
