Sprouted Chick Peas Curry

Chick peas are highly nutritious and they contain maximum of 25% protein. If you want to lose weight, have chick peas with two rotis for lunch at least 3 days a week. Chick peas fills your stomach quite well just like sprouted green gram.

There are two types of chick peas. Here I use desi chickpeas which are smaller in size with a thick seed coat.They appear dark brown in colour and take 24 hours to get the sprouts.
