  1. Thanks Priya for posting the recipe. I just made one variation. I was preparing molake huruli saaru (sprouted horse gram Sambar) and I just retained a table spoon of the same and followed your recipe. It turned out to be wonderful and everyone at home loved it!! Thanks again!

  2. I will surely try it Pradeep! Thanks for the feedback.
