Matki Kal Palya - Sprouted whole moth bean side dish


Matki Kal Palya - Sprouted Whole moth side dish

This is a new dish that we both are in love with, recently. Very simple and tasty, cant stop eating :) !! , make them atleast once a week. This Whole moth bean, is called 'Matki Kal' in 'Kannada' This recipe is from my MIL, learnt from her when she was here. Enjoyed a lot with Akki rotti, as my MIL makes akki ritti the same as north karnataka style, yummy !! This is a typical north karnataka dish, as i never knew how to use these beans as i'm from south Karnataka, Mangalore :) !!


Most of us don't know what Whole moth is??
They look similar to whole green moong but smaller in size, and bit brownish in color. Can find these beans in any Indian grocery store. Here is the link to Nirav Whole Moth/Matki from Ishopindia, where you can buy them online.

I'm sending these healthy an tasty recipe to Srivalli of "Cooking 4 all season", for her My legume love affair Event, Started by Susan.


1 cup Sprouted Whole Moth Bean
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 medium size chopped Tomato
2-3 Green chillies lenght wise sliced
2 tblsp chopped Cilantro for garnish


2 tbsp cooking Oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal
4-5 Garlic cloves crushed
1 stand curry leafs


1. For Sprouting beans:
Soak over bean in water over night, next day morning remove beans from the water and spread them on a wide vessel, sprinkle some water on the top. You can vaccum tight the vessel for just a tight lid is fine. Here I keep beans for 24 hours to sprout them out. Back in India it take only 10-12 hours i guess. My mom used to soak beans in the morning an night before bed she used to spread them out or tie them in a cotton cloth. Next day morning it was fun to see all th sprouts peeping out of the cloth :)!!
2. Heat oil in a non stick pan, add mustard seeds, when they pop up add urad dal saute for 1 minutes.
3. Add crushed garlic, saute them till they are gloden brown and add chillies, curry leafs.
4. Now add onions, fry them till onions are trasparent.
5. Time for sprouted beans to add, sprinkle little water so that they wont stick o the pan,close the lid and cook for 5 minutes. These beans are small and are cooked very soon.
6. Now add chopped tomatoes, mix and cook again for 10 minutes. Mean while just keep mixing in some intervals. Make sure the beans are cooked. At last garnish with some chopped cilantro, goes well with Akki rotti or Wheat roti or rice :) !! Enjoy !!

Hi Archy, I love anything with moth beans, so thats how I found your blog. The dish looks yum. In fact, I have not seen the use of much moth in south Indian cooking. Cheers!
