Green Beans and Sprouts

This dish feels and tastes more like a warm salad and less like a regular cooked vegetable. Tastes fabulous as a side dish with any Indian meal!

2 cups chopped green beans
1 cup sprouted green mung beans
2 teaspoons oil
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
4 small sambhar onions sliced
salt to taste
pinch of red chilly powder
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Heat the oil, add cumin seeds and mustard seeds.
When they crackle add the onions, stir and add the beans and sprouts.
Add the salt and the red chilly powder, stir and cover and cook for 5-8 minutes.
The beans and sprouts should still be crunchy when its ready. Add lemon juice.
