Green Chickpea Kofta Curry


This is a protein packed recipe,and highly nutritious too.There are various types of chickpeas,today I chose the green pea.You have to pre-soak the gram in the night,or even 1 – 3 days till it sprouts up.I prepared after it sprouted,as the sprouted ones add to the protein and nutrients.
