Please do check the events list at the right side of the blog and also send in your entries for CFK - WWF event hosted here. Today is the last day.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I did, enjoyed some sun and got sun burns as well. Sorry for keeping you all wondering as to what I did with my sprouted moong posted in my last post. So, here is what I did. I made these yummy looking tikkis out of it. Hope you all will like it.
These tikkis are so healthy that you can even serve them breakfast and don't have to feel bad about having tikkis at all :)
Ankurit Moong ki Tikki - अंकुरित मूंग की टिक्की (Sprouted Moong Patties)
Ankurit Moong (Sprouted Moong) - 2 cups (you can use regular overnight soaked green moong as well)
Hari Mirch (Green Chillies) - 2
Adrakh (Ginger) - 1 inch piece
Lal Mirch (Red Chilli) Powder - 1/2 tsp
Dhaniya (Coriander) Powder - 1/2 tsp
Jeera (Cumin) Powder - 1/2 tsp
Bread Crumbs - 1/2 to 3/4 cup
Onions - 3/4 cup finely chopped.
Salt - as per taste
- Grind everything except bread crumbs and onions coarsely or fine per your liking. Add as little water as you can as you don't want it to be runny.
- Add onions and 1/2 cup bread crumbs to it and mix well. Add more bread crumbs to make it more binding so that you can make a ball out of the mixture and form a tikki.
- Take a non stick hot griddle and fry these tikkis with as little oil as you can. I like to use zero calories oil sprays for this kind of frying. Alternatively, for those of you who have appam pan, can try it in that. I have never tried that method, but I am sure, it will be lovely.
- Fry till they are golden brown on both the sides till they are golden brown. Remember, this is ground uncooked moong, so it should be fried at low heat for longer period than usual aloo tikkis.
Serve them with some favorite chutneys or sauce or just plain old dahi.
I am sending this to MLLA # 23 event hosted by Susan and Green Gourmet event of Preeti Kashyap.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
