To make the sprouted Kala Chana…

For the Cooking…
Now heat a tsp of oil. Add jeera and some minced ginger & green chillies. Follow with washed and drained sprouted Chana. Add salt to taste and about 1/2 cup water. Pressure cook the Chana for 5-6 whistles. Once the steam releases, open cooker and check if the Chana is cooked through. Otherwise you might need to cook for another 2-3 whistles.
Now add, red chilli pwdr and some amchur.
Cook on low flame without lid till almost all of the water evaporates. Transfer to serving bowl. Top with chopped onions, freshly chopped dhania and a sprinkle of your fav bhujia/sev (optional). Serve with a generous squeeze of lime!
