Matki is one of my favorite beans. These lentils are high sources of proteins. Its usal can be enjoyed at any time of the day. A lightly flavored one for morning breakfast topped with grated coconut, for lunch, as an evening snack converted to a Sprouts Dahi Misal .

Ingredients:-

2 cups Matki sprouts (Moth Beans)
1 Onion chopped
1 Tomato chopped /pureed (optional)
1-2 tsp Garlic Ginger paste
½ tsp Chili powder
½ tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Maharashtrian Goda Masala (kala masala)
½ tsp cumin powder
½ tsp coriander powder
3 tsp Cilantro chopped
3 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste

Method:-

Wash and soak matki for 5-6 hrs.
Drain water and put in thin wet cloth for sprouting. [This process might take 1-2 days]

Sprouted Matki

Put sprouted matki in cooker and cook for 1 whistle (if cooked more, it will become mushy!)
Heat oil in a pan.
Reduce to medium heat once hot and add onion.
Fry onions till translucent, then add ginger garlic paste.
Then add tomatoes or tomato puree. Cook for a 2 minutes.
Then Add chili powder, turmeric and goda masala and allow it to cook for a minute or two.
Add matki, cilantro and salt and allow it to cook for a few minutes.
If you desire some sauce, add a cup of water.
Allow it to boil for a few minutes with a lid on till matki is cooked.
Serve with hot chapatti ,pulkas or rice and yogurt.

    Yes my friend also told me to keep them in water and let them kept aside to be sprouted... he says they are rich souce of protiens...

    I did the same one day but there are some taste differences compared to the one that is used without sprouting...

    now I would have to prepare this dish and say " mazhi tandurusti chi raksha kareel matki chi usal"(slang in marathi)
