I had some moong sprouts in my fridge..I was thinking what to make with it. I am not a big of fan of eating it raw, i either make salads or some chaat. I have shared the kosambari which i made using this and pomegranate yesterday. Will soon share the chaat which i made.
Yesterday when i was thinking what to make with it, i decided to make a tikki using it. And instead of grinding the sprouts raw, i decided to cook it for couple of mins to get the raw taste from it and then make this tikki. And when i tasted, it tasted just like masala vadai.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
