Magge koddel with sprouted moog (or Yellow cucumbers with sprouted mung beans)


A super easy typical Konkani dish that takes a lot of garlic and tastes just great.


1C unsprouted mung beans, sprouted overnight
1C yellow cucumbers or magge, chopped into 1″ thick pieces
1/2C grated coconut
2tsp tamarind paste
6-8 red chillies
8-10 garlic cloves, smashed
2tsp coconut oil


Slowly roast the red chilies and grated coconut till the coconut starts to dry out. Grind the chillies and coconut in a wet stone grinder. Heat the mixture in 3-4 cups of water. Add tamarind. After about 10 minutes, add the magge and sprouted beans. Cook till the raw smell from the coconut/chillies is gone. In a separate container, heat the coconut oil. When hot, add the smashed garlic and immediately turn the heat off and add to the cooked mixture. Serve with dosa or white rice.

My condition was progressively deteriorating over the past 2 years. I’d been good at taking my medicine and exercising so knew I should have felt better. My arthritis and scleroderma were really affecting my quality of life. Increasing pain and fatigue were wearing me down.

Dr. Jenny and Ajoy came well-recommended so I got in touch. I completed a short questionnaire before my consultation. Covid meant it was all done over VC. They put me at ease, and it was like we were in the same room. They asked all the right medical and lifestyle questions without judgement. They devised a plan which was holistic, realistic and easy to follow. Their gentle and knowledgeable coaching kept me on track.

The resulting decrease in swelling and pain has given me a new lease of life in a few weeks. I feel so much better and look so much happier. I felt they were genuinely interested in my well-being. Happy to highly recommend them.
