Gravies in South india are usually made using small onions. The small onions make gravies taste better than big onions. This vegetarian gravy calls for simple ingredients and is very easy to prepare. Sprouts are packed with proteins but the toughest thing is to make kids have such high protein food. Sprouts curry is a special gravy made in our house and its my kids favourite too! In this gravy, sprouts act as a substitute for chicken or mutton so my kids love to have it with dosa . Sprouts curry makes best accompaniment with dosa , rice or even chappati. This recipe can be made instantly using curry chilli powder. I have also given alternate method of preparing this gravy for those who dont have curry chilli powder ready in hand. Do try this protein rich gravy for your family without fail. So lets move on to the recipe showing how to make that yummy sprouts curry.
