I tried sprouting every other sprout-able grain before adding them to any recipe; so did I experiment with urad dal also. This is another imitation recipe that I tried, which otherwise we usually make with moong sprouts. As I expected, it did not have any raw smell or urad dal, in fact it did not taste any different from moong sprouts. For most of us urad is dominantly used only in idly/ dosa batter or tadka; this recipe is for people who want to try something new.
