Chop the coriander stems and leaves separately. Take about ½ cup of peel which floats on top of boiled green gram with few cooked grams and grind with coriander stems, green chilli, ginger coconut and cumin seeds and ½ cup of water into a paste. Add ½ the coriander leaves and grind using the Pulse, until they are crushed (avoid over grinding at this stage).

Heat the sprouted gram mixture till it begins to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for two minutes. Add the yogurt and enough water, if necessary, to get a curry of medium pouring consistency. Cook stirring till the curry begins to boil and switch off the heat.
