For this mixed sprouts pulao, you will need mixed sprouts. You can easily prepare mixed sprouts by soaking legumes like chickpeas (chana), green gram, red gram, horse gram, black eyed peas etc overnight. Moring wash again and drain water. Keep sprinkling water two or three times a day and mix. In 24 hours, it will start sprouting. You can repeat this until you want desired length sprouts for 2 or maximum 3 days. You can buy this mixed sprouts in stores too. But if you are concerned about hygiene, then better you sprout at home. The pulao is simple recipe just like other pulaos, but this idea was told to me by my co sis after seeing a cookery show. I adjusted the recipe as per my taste. Very easy when sprouts is ready and you can pack this for lunch box, a healthy and hearty meal. You can pair it up with any rich gravy or simply raita.
