Sprout Khichri


Sprout Khichri

Recently I bought sprouts from supermarket imagining that family will love eating sprouts as it is quite healthy food. However when I tried to serve them sprout salad everyone just revolted against my idea. I was confused and I left it in my fridge unused.

Next day I was just trying to figure out what to cook, everyone was insisting on his/her choice. I opened my fridge to see material available. I saw sprouts lying unused. An idea came to my mind and I prepared rice using sprouts. I was happy to serve them nutritious food. Family was happy that they got pulao to relish.

Sprouts are healthy but do you know when we use it raw some time it can trigger food poisoning as we can't see or smell the harmful bacteria which is germinating in raw food. But when we boil sprouts all the harmful bacteria get killed during proper cooking and cooked protein is easier to digest.  So I am happy to serve safe and healthy sprout khichri to my family
