Mixed Sprouts Kurma
This mighty mixed sprouts kurma is one of my favorite preparations from my Mom. It tastes wonderful and very healthy too. As we know, Sprouts are the best source of balanced food and play a vital role in the overall enhancement. Also, they are good source of protein and vitamin C . They continue producing vitamins up, until the moment we consume them. Even, in our refrigerator, they keep sprouting. Another, benefit is they are organic and are not compromised by pesticides and fumigants, as in the case of veg and fruits , we purchase in stores. This kurma makes great combo with hot soft chapati, roti, spongy dosa Idly. The recipe of Mixed Sprouts Kurma is here for you to giv a try…:))
