Sprouted Green Gram Curry - Sprouted Moong Beans Curry

Sprouted Green Gram Curry, this is such a simple dish to make as a side dish for chapati. This will be good to eat with steamed rice as well. You can make this curry with whole green gram as well. But  using sprout make it more healthier. I have used brinjal along with sprout in this recipe, you can also add potatoes instead of brinjal. Adding coconut gives more flavor to the curry.
