Moong Sprout Cutlets/A Wholesome Breakfast/A Yummy Snack

0

Green moong dal sprouts cutlets mixed with fresh seasonal veggies is a complete package of nutrition and taste which can be served as an evening snack or a  breakfast dish. Whole green moong with sprouts is included in my day to day menu. I steam them to make a moong sprout salad adding fresh salad veggies or sometimes pan fry in little oil to make these delicious cutlets

These cutlets are delicate to handle as veggies release some liquid so I add some rice flour and besan/gram flour to them. Bread crumbs can also be added for binding to make easier to pan fry easily. I add crushed roasted peanuts for the crunch. The making is very easy, not only this, you will love to have something different as snacks
