Sprouted Moong Tikkis: This is another of my highly nutritious, healthy and low-fat recipes. These tikkis can be made in minimal oil to reduce the fat calories. I like the taste of the sprouts and hence kept the list of ingredients minimal in the recipe.
Sprouts are the vegetable source of proteins in our diet, and are also rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. The sprouting process makes the seeds, lentils easier to digest.
Ingredients: Sprouted Green gram: 1 Bowl
Onion: 1 Small
Cumin: 1 tsp
Green Chilli: 2 no
Salt to taste.
Coarsely ground the sprouted moong and green chillies in a mixer bowl and empty it in a bowl.
Chop the small onion finely, and add it to the coarsely ground moong. Dry roast the cumin and add to this mix.
Season the moong mixture with salt.
Heat a fry pan on the gas stove and add 1 tsp oil for greasing the pan. Scoop spoonful mixture and put in the pan, give it a shape of tikki. Cook the tikkis on medium to slow flame, and evenly on both side by turning it.
Serve it hot with green chutney or any sauce of choice, though I prefer to eat them plain.
These healthy tikkis can be served as a power-packed breakfast dish or as one of the dishes for a brunch menu on weekends.
