Matki Sprouts and Capsicum Pulao

After making those yummy vadas, I was still left with some more sprouts that I decided to use it up for my dinner preparation.  Just made this simple pulao using these and some bell peppers....

1 cup basmati rice
1 cup sprouted matki or moth beans
1 medium ripe tomato
1 small onion
1 small yellow capsicum
1 tsp paprika powder
3 garlic cloves
small piece of ginger
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2-1 tsp pav bhaji powder(this gives a different flavor to the dish...I have added this to some of my quick subzis using pumpkin or zucchini)

Cook the basmati rice and let it cool.

Heat up a tablespoon of oil and splutter the cumin seeds.  Add the onions along with the garlic and ginger and saute till they are translucent.  Add the capsicum and do a quick saute before adding the tomatoes.  Add   all the powders and little bit of salt and cook the tomatoes for a minute or two before adding the sprouts.  After this cook for further five minutes.  Add the cooled rice to it and combine till the rice is thoroughly mixed with the vegetables on low heat.

Enjoy this pulao with raita or with any subzi of your choice.
