Bean Sprout Sundal | A Simple Bean Sprout Stir Fry with Spices
If you need to make bean sprouts, pop over here. It will take a couple of days. This recipe is suitable for any bean sprouts. The photos show Urad sprouts.
To make the Sundal, take some panch phoron (Indian seed spice mix) and add to nearly a Tblspn ghee melted in a pan. Allow the mustard seeds in the panch phoron to pop and the other seeds to brown but not burn. Add a cup of bean sprouts and saute in the spices and ghee until warmed through but not soft. Serve warm or at room temperature.
You can also add a teaspoon of white (hulled) split urad dal to the spices. This adds some crunch to the dish. You can also add some grated coconut (I use frozen) to the last moments of stir frying for a delicious alternative.
Any bean sprout that does not require cooking can be used in this, and it is particularly suited to Mung Bean Sprouts and Urad sprouts.
If you would like to use sprouts that are harder, for example white pea sprouts, steam them a little before making the stirfry.
