As promised here is one of the most easy and healthy way to include sprouts in our diet, a very simple recipe nothing complicated or hi-fi here.  Beetroot is one of my favorite vegetable and you can guess that by the number of beets recipe I have blogged so far.  Here again is a usual beetroot stir fry or poriyal with extra sprouts goodness.  As I mention in my "How to Sprouts" post eating it raw is the best thing but if you are one of those people whom doesn't like to eat raw sprout then try this recipe.  We add sprouts just before finish cooking and it's get cooked by steam itself, which keep sprouts nutrition intact up to a certain level and also adds wonderful crunch to the stir fry, it goes well with rice-sambar-dal-rasam combo or even roti.
