Green Gram Curry

Green gram also known as mung bean or pasipayaru belongs to the legume family. It is rich in fibre and protein. There are many different recipes that can be made with green gram. I usually make pesarattu, green gram sprouts, green gram sundal and this curry. It is easy to cook and tastes good too. You can have this curry with roti or dosa.
