Matki Moth Beans Sprouts:

Although you can find sprouts in the Indian grocery store, I prefer to make them. Here is the recipe to make Matki Moth Beans Sprouts . In my experience, they are easy to make, cheap and fresh when made at home.

Other ingredients: cumin seeds, ginger garlic paste, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground turmeric, kashmiri chili powder, curry leaves, Serrano peppers, tomato, water, salt, oil, freshly chopped cilantro leaves, dried desiccated coconut, and onions.

Most of the ingredients can be found in the Indian store.

Surely, you need an Instant Pot.

Furthermore, when the onions turn golden in roughly 2 to 4 minutes, add the tomatoes and salt. At this time, give it a good stir. Let the tomatoes saute for about 2 minutes.

Then, secure the lid on and select manual/high pressure for 6 minutes. When done quick release the pressure. For my Instant Pot Matki Ussal – Indian Sprout Beans, I like to stir in some dry desiccated coconut at the very end. A touch of fresh cilantro at the end adds a pop of flavor. Add in the coconut and cilantro. If there is excess liquid select saute and let the excess liquid evaporate. It should take a minute. Transfer to a serving bowl. Enjoy hot with naan or roti (tortilla).

Cook

  • Select sauté on the instant pot and adjust to normal. Add oil to the pot. When the oil is hot add cumin seeds.
  • When the cumin seeds splutter, add the diced onions, curry leaves, ginger garlic paste, and serrano peppers. You can eliminate or reduce the Serrano peppers if you cant tolerate heat. Stir occasionally to prevent the onions from burning.
  • When the onions turn golden in roughly 2 to 4 minutes, add the tomatoes and salt. At this time, give it a good stir. Let the tomatoes saute for about 2 minutes.

Notes

  • On a scale of 1 to 5 in terms of spice levels I would say this dish is a 3.5 with the Serrano peppers. You can reduce the heat by reducing or eliminating the Serrano peppers.
  • The Kashmiri chili powder imparts a beautiful red color to the dish and is not spicy.
