Sprouts Curry

My sister also is in love of sprouts! She uses different beans and makes this delicious dish that is finger licking good. Normally we have it with chapatis, but this one is good enough to eat spoonfuls. And look at those sprouts! Who even needs to cook them? Certainly I won't. I would just eat them up like that.

I mentioned to her about Priya's let's sprout event and she said she would love to participate in it. Since she doesn't have a blog, I was ready to provide her a platform, my blog.

This is so good, even her 2-year old jumps to eat this dish!
