I love your recipes! Is there a substitute for urad dhal in this recipe?

Just skip it if you don't have it. It adds a nice crunch to the dish. You could substitute with toasted and crushed peanuts.

Hi Waheetha, I will surely add the procedure for sprouting beans at home. Brussels Sprouts is a vegetable and not a bean sprout. You can find Brussels Sprouts in all American groceries. In India also they are available in some food marts.
