Spicy Chickpea Sprouts

1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 cups green chickpea sprouts
1/2 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 tablespoon chana masala
1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice – optional

1) Wash chickpea sprouts and drain thoroughly. Set aside. In a medium-size skillet, heat the oil and add cumin seeds. As soon as cumin seeds start sputtering stir in the remaining ingredients except lemon juice and cook over the high heat for 8 to 10 minutes.
2) Add lemon juice and adjust the seasonings as needed. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves if desired.
