Add fried onion, ginger, garlic cloves, coconut powder and coriander leaves in mixer-grinder bowl, grind it well. Make smooth paste out of it.
Step 2: Now take a deep pan and heat the oil. Add chopped onion, corinader leaves in it, fry it well. Add turmeric powder and salt in this fried onion, fry for 1-2 minutes, then add sprouts(Matki/usal), mix it well, then cover it for 4-5 Minutes.
Step 3: Start to make curry / rassa of missal. Take deep pan and heat the oil. Add dry red chili, curry leaves, bay leaf and cardamom in warm oil, saute on low flame till spices turn aromatic. Now add previously prepared paste and fry it well. Then add coriander powder, red chili powder, turmeric powder, Garam masala and salt in this mixture. Remember we have to cook this mixture until oil is released from masala paste.
Step 4: Now oil is released from masala, so add 2 cups of water and let the water boil. After 2 minutes when water starts boiling, add fried sprouts in this spicy masala gravy. Let the sprouts boil in the water. After 2-3 minutes add more 4 cups water in it and let the gravy boil on high flame for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes reduce the flame and boil it on low flame.
