I usually make Red Chilli Rice when I there is no stock of green chilli in my refrigerator and also am tired of all the masala spicy items. I added sprouted green gram so that this dish could also participate in My legume love affair-15,this edition hosted by Sia of Monsoon spice,an event started by Susan. 

So here it is for you all to give a try.
