Garlic Mustard greens with Moong sprouts - insanely simple and healthy

Hello everyone!! Life is really busy as always but I am going to try and post something at least once in a while.

Today I want to share this insanely simple and healthy dish with you - my own creation - Garlic Mustard greens with Moong sprouts

Now-a-days everyone seems to be following some kind of diet and they want to eat smaller portions and healthier. Please keep in mind that even if you are dieting, it is essential that you eat food that is highly nutritional. If you compromise on nutrition, your body will be deficient of essential vitamins and minerals. Well, this recipe that I am sharing today is extremely minimalist on spices and high on nutritional value and taste.

Ingredients: Mustard greens - 1 bunch, Moong sprouts - 1 cup, Onion - 1 medium, Tomato - 1 small, Garlic - 10-12 pods chopped, Cumin seeds - 1 tsp, black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp, oil - 3 tsp, salt to taste.

Method: Wash mustard greens and chop them, cook sprouts with a little salt in a microwave for 8 mins, chop tomato and onion into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds chopped garlic and black pepper powder when hot. Saute for 1/2 minute and add onion. Cook till soft and then add the mustard greens. Cook for 3-5 minutes and then add cooked sprouts. Check for salt and add some if required (since we cooked the sprouts with some salt earlier). Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes in the end and turn off the flame. Let the tomatoes cook on steam for 1 minute.

Serve with rotis or as a side dish with rice. Can't get any simpler than this :)

Till next time, take care everyone!!
