Though this is a very basic one bowl meal recipe. However, the variations are found all over the world. In one of the Korean variations, in which meat is added is called KONGNAMUL BAP. The Chinese add a concoction of Spring onions, celery, capsicum, carrots and French beans. The Japanese add the sprouts to Ramen. The Nepalese Kwati has 9 types of Sprouts

In this simple recipe, we will just take the Sprouts and pressure cook them with Rice. If you like a tangy taste, you may put amchur powder a sauce like Hot and Sour.
