Sprouted Black-eyed Peas & Tomato Kurma

Actually i prepared this nutritious kurma before leaving for vacations, but i wasnt able to post this droolworthy kurma before, this beautiful and easy kurma takes less time also its goes awesome as side dish with any sort of dishes from breakfast to dinner, yep i served this yummyilicious kurma along with hot steaming rice with papads for lunch and with rotis for dinner, this sprouted blackeyed peas gives more nutritious value to this simple tomato kurma also personally i felt its kinda better way to sneak sprouted beans..Needless to say that sprouts are very healthier also have many nutritious value when compared with usual beans, most of my followers would have seen or know that i love sprouting and i do prepare often dishes with sprouts..Sending this healthy kurma to CWS-Fennel Seeds guest hosted by me and to Healing Foods-Tomato guest hosted by PJ, event by Siri also sending to Divya's Show Me Your Curry..

Sprouted Blackeyed Peas & Tomato Kurma
