This sumptuous and simple dish is enlivened with the addition of vegetables and sprouts. Sprouting not only enhances the nutritive value of foods but also makes them easier to digest. It is really easy to make sprouts at home - simply soak the matki in water for 6 to 8 hours and then wrap them in a damp muslin cloth for 2 to 3 days taking care to keep the muslin damp at all times. Bulghur wheat is available at most traditional banias, not at our larger grocery stores. Ask your neighbourhood bania to get you some as it's a good substitute for rice. Serve with low fat curds or kala jamun raita.
