Beetroot Kadala

Beetroot Kadala Thoran is a simple, nutritious and healthy south Indian style stir fry. The
Thoran (south Indian stir fry) can be made using different vegetable, with minor variations in spices.

Here I have given a twist to the traditional recipe to make it healthier by using sprouted Kadala(chickpea). Sprouting them increases their nutrient value. Sprouted chickpeas can be easily added to salads, snacks or consumed on their own.

Beetroot Kadala Thoran is prepared by stir frying Kadala with grated coconut, finely chopped onions mustard seeds, curry leaves and few spices, You can serve this Thoran(stir fry) as an accompaniment to rice or as a salad bowl.
