Mixed vegetable moong sprouts curry

Sprouts are considered as wonder foods. They rank as the freshest and most nutritious of all vegetables available to the human diet. By a process of natural transmutation, sprouted food acquires vastly improved digestibility and nutritional qualities when compared to non-sprouted embryo from which it derives. Moong sprouts are rich source of protien, Vitamin-C and iron. With moong sprouts I usually make salad or just  a simple dal. This is the first time I tried cooking the sprouts with different kinds of veggies and spices and the outcome was a real hit. Adding veggies to the tthe moong sprouts makes it more healthy and Panchpuran- bengali spice mix adds up to the flavour of the dish.  Its a low fat dish as I have used very minmal oil, just for the seasoning..
