Mixed sprouts in gravy

   Sprouts are one of my favorite things to eat in any form.I like to mix different whole pulses and make them in different ways.They are high on fibre and great in nutrition.And adding them in your diet would benefit the body in different ways.I use this particular recipe with rice as a combination.Eat it just this way or maybe a slice of toasted bread.
