How to make Matki Cha Bhaat with Veggies

  1. To sprout the matki beans- Wash and soak the moth in water for a couple of hours. Now drain the water and keep covered after wrapping them in a damp cloth, covered,in a warm place for 6 hours. You should have shoots sprouting by the end.
  2. Grind ginger,garlic, cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns, coriander leaves/seeds,zeera, the coconut ,tamarind, half the turmeric,a little water into a smooth mixture.
  3. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker. Give a tadka of mustard seeds, curry leaves, hing and slit green chillies. As this starts to splutter, add half of the other half of the turmeric powder and mix in quickly.
  4. Now add the onions and saute till translucent. Add the ground masala paste, stir briskly on low medim heat and fry for about 2 minutes till brown.
  5. Add the chopped veggies and mix in. Now add the sprouted moth and cook for a minute
  6. Add the rice and water it was soaked in. Add salt. Put the lid on the cooker. After the first big whistle, cook on low heat for 5-7 minutes. Take off the lid after the pressure is released on its own.
  7. Serve the rice with dahi, raita, papad, chutney on the side .

My Tip:

You can add a dash of the traditional Maharashtrian Goda Masala while sauteing the veggies and moth or in lieu of it,add just a quarter of a tspn of Garam Masala Powder.
