Sprouted Methi Seeds Rasam

As i do with the dry legumes, i usually sprout the fenugreek seeds, horsegrams and sometimes channa as large quantities and freeze them in plastic boxes so that i can use them whenever i need for.. These sprouted veggies are quite handy to try out any gravies or as side dishes anytime... I have a bag of sprouted fenugreek seeds still in my freezer and here is one of my trial with sprouted fenugreek seeds as rasam...Todays its too snowy and we felt like having simple and something comforting, so i prepared everything to make out rasam with tomatoes and my mind as usual, thought of making out something different as rasam with some frozen sprouted fenugreek seeds..Once i tempered the seeds and dry red chillies, i have sauteed the sprouted fenugreek seeds until they turns soft and added the uncooked rasam water which i prepared with tomatoes, the tanginess of the tomatoes dominated the bitterness of these fenugreek seeds and we loved having this healthy, delicious tangy rasam with some simple potato fries, this rasam is quite healthy for diabetic peoples as fenugreek seeds are well recommanded to diabetic peoples coz of their health values..Needless to say that these rasam goes directly to  my own event CWS-Fenugreek Seeds guest hosted by SE of Denufood for this month and to Yasmeen's Bitter Better Foods..



2nos Tomatoes (crushed)
1/4cup Sprouted fenugreek seeds
1tsp Home made rasam powder
4nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Cumin seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Dry red chillies
5nos Curry leaves
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1tsp Lemon juice

Take the crushed tomatoes,crushed garlic cloves, home made rasam powder,curry leaves with enough salt and water together in a bowl ....heat enough oil and add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, dry red chillies,slit opened green chillies and asafoetida powder and let them fry..add the sprouted fenugreek seeds to the tempered spices and saute until they turns soft, now add the already prepared tomato-spice water to the cooking veggies..once they starts bubbling put off the stove and garnish with coriander leaves and add the lemon juice..put off the stove..

Serve hot with rice and any spicy side dishes!
