Sprouts are nothing but germinated seeds. Despite being low in calories, they are a rich source of nutrition and helps to control blood Sugar levels, improves digestion as they are rich in dietary fibre. They can be eaten raw as salad or can be used in various dishes. In this recipe I have used a mix of fenugreek and green moong sprouts but only one type of sprouts can also be used. When combined with the nutritious millets, the health benefits manifolds. Enjoy this simple easy recipe.
