Whole Wheat and Sprouts Kanji
This is almost similar to Oats and Sago Kanji, i just replace the oats and sago with whole wheat and mung sprouts. It is also a suitable light meal to have for iftar after a long day fast. Normally i used to make this only moong dhal but with the inspiration of Priya's event, i made this with sprouts.

Whole Wheat- 3 tbsp
Mung Sprouts- 1/2 cup
Carrot- 1 medium sized finely chopped
Beans- 1/4 cup chopped
Onion- 1 small sized finely chopped
Tomato- 1/2 medium sized finely chopped
Green chilli- 2
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Methi seeds- 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds- 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves- 1 tbsp finely chopped
Garlic- 3 cloves choppes
Coconut milk or whole milk- 1/2 cup
Salt as required
Oil- 1/2 tbsp
Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add methi and cumin seeds. Then add finely chopped onions, carrot and beans, you don't have to cook the vegetables or onion too much since you are going to pressure cook them. So add the remaining ingredients along with salt and 2 cups of water. Pressure cook for 4 to 5 whistles.
Serve the kanji by itself while it's still warm or you can also serve with some bread.
This recipe goes to Let's Sprout event by Priya's Easy N Tasty Recipes, my own event Iftar Moments: Hijri 1431 and Think Spice Think Fenugreek by Priya Mitharwal originally started by Sunitha.
