👉Now add in the soaked rice to the pot (wash and strain the water)then add in the chopped cilantro/ coriander leaves and last add the Garam masala,give it a stir and cover the pot with the lid and let it cook on medium flame for 7 to 8 mins or until the rice absorbs all the water and cooks well.

And your pulao is ready to serve. You can use different type of sprouts or mixed sprouts.

I have use here moth beans and sprouted them at home.

To sprout the beans:

👉In order to sprout the moth beans, first it has to be sorted to remove stones, washed,and then soaked in water for 6-8 hours or overnight.Wash the beans again and drain the Water.

Than hang the soaked beans in a moist cloth for a day or 10 to 12 hours or till you see the sprouts coming out, when they develop short shoots they are done.
