This dish is from Karnataka and I would like to share with you all how to make hurulimalake Huli or sprouted horsegram curry. The curry goes well with rice, chapathi and rotti. My preference is to eat with rotti.
This curry takes about 45 mins cooking time so do it when u have lots of time. It serves a family size of 4.
Horsegram - 100g or 1 big cup
Onions- 2 Medium sized, diced into cubes
Oil for tampering
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 line
For making curry paste
Coriander seeds - 1tbsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Red Chillies -10 or adjust to your spice levels
Cinnamon powder -1/2 tsp
Onion - 1/2 diced
Masala Paste -2
Poppy Seeds - 2 tsp or alternatively you can soak 4-5 cashews
1.Soak horsegram in soda bicarb water for a day. Remove water from the beans and transfer the soaked beans into a cheese cloth/airtight box and allow it to sprout as you do it for any other beans. They take more than a day to show sprouts. ( Sodabicarb water is only for soaking and not for sprouting. Soaking the beans in soda bi carb water reduces the cooking time , since horsegram requires usual than longer time to get cooked this method comes handy here. )
