Cucumber Cups

1 long English Cucumber cut in 1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup moong sprouts
1/2 tsp oil
¼ tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp grated ginger
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt/ black salt
Few drops of lemon juice
1/2 tsp jeera pwdr / cumin pwdr
How to make sprouts: Soak the whole moong for 10 to 12 hours or overnite. Soaked moong will be double in volume.
Drain the water completely and loosely wrap the beans with a muslin or cheesecloth or any thin napkin. Store the soaked beans in a warm dark place.After a day you will see the sprouts in the moong. That means it ready for use.
In a small frying pan, heat the oil on medium heat. Add cumin seeds, grated ginger & rest of the ingredients including the sprouted moong. Cook for 2-3 minutes until sprouts are tender.Add lemon juice, stir and set aside.
Take cucumber slices and scoop out the seeds, creating small bowls. Don't make a hole in it.
Fill the cucumber slices with moong sprouts.Serve cold or at room temperature.
