Sprouted Green Gram Sundal (Moong Sundal)

Sprouted grains are good for health and are high in protein. Having any sprouted grain for the morning breakfast will be a good start for the day. If you don’t like to eat raw sprouts, you can add it in salads or make sundal like this one. It is also a perfect snack for kids and adults.



  • Green gram or Whole moong dal – 1 cup
  • Coconut oil – 1 tsp
  • Dried chili – 1
  • Shredded coconut – 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida – a pinch
  • Curry leaves – 6
  • Chopped coriander leaves – 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt to taste

Method of Preparation: 1. Wash and soak moong dal in water for 12 hours. I usually soak it in the morning around 7 am to night 7 pm.

2. Remove any dirt or stones and strain it through a colander.

3. Tie it in a clean cotton cloth and hang it for 16 hours. If the cloth becomes dry sprinkle some water and keep it wet all the time. It helps sprouting well.

4. When you see sprouts, untie the knot.

5. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and dried chilies. Allow the mustard seeds to splutter and then add the sprouts.

6. Sprinkle some water and allow it to cook until it becomes soft (about 10 minutes)

7. Finally add shredded coconut, curry leaves, coriander leaves and asafoetida. Mix well.

8. A healthy sprouts sundal is ready.
