Moong Sprout Cutlets/A Wholesome Breakfast/A Yummy Snack


Green moong dal sprouts cutlets mixed with fresh seasonal veggies are a complete package of nutrition and taste that 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 them in little oil to make these delicious cutlets


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