Notes

Garnish individually each bowl with Sev as a garnish right before eating if you wish to. It tastes great even without it.
If you want to enjoy the raw crunch of the sprouts, you can directly use raw sprouts.
Feel free to omit an ingredient or include any of your favourite ingredients.
Adjust spice levels with any of the spices under the list "dry masalas" to suit your taste. You can even skip green chillies.
You can include some pieces of cut raw mango, it tastes great.
Adjust all the spices and tanginess with salt to suit your taste.
