Watermelon & Sprouted Fenugreek Pappu

Quick ,healthy and easy dals or pappu are always my favourite, one among those pappu is this watermelon rind and sprouted fenugreek pappu, i prepared this delicious, healthy as a diabetic friendly pappu which is quite a complete food when served along with cooked cracked wheat;rotis or with hot steaming rice..The bitterness of sprouted fenugreek is completely masked by the watermelon white rinds i used in this pappu, both watermelon rinds and sprouted fenugreek works out wonder and i spiced this pappu simply with rasam powder, pepper powder and lemon juice...Fabulous comforting food when served along with papads and lemon pickle, we loved it..
