Moong Sprouts Thoran & Announcing Vegan Thursdays

We a group of food bloggers started a new event and named it as Vegan Thursdays, this event starts from today. The main motto of this event is to share vegan dishes from any cuisine. Most of our Indian foods are vegan, obviously most of our daily routine foods we make or eat are vegan without our knowlegde.

Veganism means abstaining from the use of animal porducts. Vegan peoples dont use dairy products,eggs,and any other animal derived substances like honey in their cooking.So we a bunch of food bloggers will be showcasing our vegan foods during thursdays, this event will held twice a month. We will be posting the first week's thursday and last week's thursday of every month. This Vegan Thursday dont have any theme and the choice of the recipes prepared by each blogger being part of this event depend upon their choice.

Anyone interested in joining us, please leave your email id in the comment section and we will contact you.

Dont forget to visit my blogger friends who are all in Vegan Thursday:
1) Sangee 2) Manjula 3) Nalini 4) Vardhini 5) Viji 6) Divya 7) Priya 8)Nayana 9)Suji


Coming to my today's recipe its completely a vegan,nutritious,protein packed healthy stir fry. Moong sprouts are excellent source of many nutrients, this thoran is a simple stir fry with usual spices. Serve this thoran with hot piping rasam, you will definitely love this combination and both together tastes absolutely divine.Easy breezy stir fry gets ready easily and you can enjoy even as a simple snacks, yep i usually finish them as a snack if there is any leftover after our lunch.Sending  to my own event Healthy Diet - Cooking with Sprouts guest hosted by Roshni.

This reminds me I have to buy a new moong packet to sprout moong for my husband.
The previous moong and kala chana packets I had bought last year just don't sprout. At all!
So strange right?
