Green gram fry recipe, green gram stir-fry recipe
Green gram also known as mung bean is by itself nutritious and mild in flavor. Green gram is a rich source of low-fat protein and high fiber. Moreover, green gram is also considered low-glycemic.
I cook green gram very often, as it is very good for health. Mostly, I will make kootu with it. If you like sprouts, then you can make the same stir fry with mung sprouts too. I wanted to post some recipes for Maha Shivaratri and this green gram stir fry came to my mind. I make this often whenever I am pressed on time. For me, I like it with sambar, kootu and even eat it as sundal. Hope you all like it!
