Red Chori Bean Sprouts Usli

Usli, a protein rich snack is usually prepared using soaked and cooked dry beans or sprouts. My mom used to make usli / guggillu with various beans for a quick evening snack. Based on that, I made a nutritious, sprouted red chori bean usli which you can put together in around 5 minutes (if you have sprouts ready).

Red chori bean sprouts

You need:
Red chori beans sprouts - 1 cup
Fresh grated coconut / frozen coconut, thawed - 1/4 cup
Medium sized green chillies, finely chopped - 2
Oil - 2 tsp
Chanadal - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Few curry leaves
Juice from half a lime / lemon (optional)

Red chori bean usli

Heat oil in a small pan, add chanadal and mustard seeds. When chanadal turn red, add chillies and curry leaves and stir them for a few seconds.
Next add sprouts, coconut and salt to the pan, stir the whole mixture and saute them for a couple of minutes before turning off the stove.
Drizzle with lemon juice, if using.
Serve hot.

Very filling & high in protein too.
We make the same thing with kadala(don't know the English name for this lentil. It is small & brown) I love having this as a snack.
Suma, your pics are always so nice & clear and some of the close-ups(like the poha-curd pic) are superb!
