Healthy Sprouted Horse Gram Curry
Sprouted horse gram curry is a delicious lentil curry made with horse gram and flavoured with spices and coconut.
A lesser-known legume, horse gram is known as kulith in Hindi. Its name in English comes from the fact that it is a staple food for horses and cattle. It is rich in iron, protein, and calcium, and it may help control cholesterol and blood sugar levels. It may also protect liver function and help with skin disorders.
Serve this curry with steamed rice or roti.
