Molake Kalu Saru

My final recipe for this week even for this year. I was not much active here this year because of my health and personal issues. Hope fully will be more active next year. So my final recipe is a side dish from Karnataka cuisine. This gravy is a good choice for plain rice and chapati. I made this gravy with black channa sprouts and moong sprouts you can add as many sprouts you like. Like you can make this with mixed sprouts or even with only one variety of sprouts. If you don't have sprouts can make this gravy with soaked pulces.
                                                                         

So lets check the recipe.....

What a unique combo for the curry, the sprouts making it healthy and eggplants giving it body for the gravy.
