  • Bloom Organic Sprouted Kala Chana - 1/2 cup
  • Bloom Organicย Cooked Basmati Rice - 1 cup
  • Ghee - 1 tbsp
  • Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Onion - 1 small size chopped
  • Salt to taste


  • Begin by soaking the chana (chickpeas) in water overnight to soften them. This is crucial for activating the germination process.
  • The next morning, drain the water and place the chana in a damp cloth or a sprouting jar in a dark, warm place. Allow them to sprout for about 24-48 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity. Youโ€™ll notice small tails emerging from the chana, indicating they are sprouted.
  • Once sprouted, soak the chana in hot water for 30 minutes to soften them further. This step ensures they are tender and cook evenly. After soaking, drain the water thoroughly.


  • Heat a medium-sized pan and add ghee to it. Allow the ghee to melt and get hot.
  • To the hot ghee, add whole spices such as cinnamon sticks, cloves, cardamom pods, and bay leaves. Sautรฉ these spices for about a minute until they start to crackle and release their aromatic oils, enhancing the flavor base of the dish.
  • Next, add finely chopped onions to the pan. Sautรฉ the onions on medium heat until they turn golden brown, which usually takes about 5-7 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure they cook evenly and donโ€™t burn.
  • Add the sprouted chana to the pan with the onions and sautรฉ for a few minutes. The goal is to integrate the chana with the flavors of the spices and onions.
  • Season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Mix well to ensure even seasoning.
  • Now, gently fold in the pre-cooked rice (preferably Basmati for its fragrance and texture). Toss everything together carefully to avoid breaking the rice grains. The rice should get well-coated with the spices and mix uniformly with the chana.
  • Continue to sautรฉ the mixture for another couple of minutes. This step helps to heat the rice through and allows the flavors to meld together.


  • Once everything is heated through and well mixed, transfer the chana rice to a serving dish.
  • Serve hot, garnished with fresh cilantro or parsley if desired. Optionally, a squeeze of lemon juice can be added to enhance the flavors just before serving.

This dish makes a nourishing main course or a hearty side dish, perfect for a wholesome meal. It pairs beautifully with yogurt, salad, or your choice of raita.

Bon appรฉtit!
