Sprouted Green Moong Tikki (Sprouts Tikki)

Sprouted Green Moong Tikki (Sprouts Tikki)

I usually sprout Moong during the weekend and keep it for Salads. This week, I am feeling too bored to eat sprouts in Salad and so wanted to make something interesting with it. So I made some Tikkis. Believe you in, they tasted Yum and my mom could not even identify that I have made it with Moong Sprouts. I have used Potato only for Binding, if you want you can avoid it and used the alternatives that I have given in the notes.

  • Green Moong – 2 Cups (I have used Sprouted, you can use just soaked green Moong too)
  • Potato – 1 (Small, Boiled)
  • Onion – 1(Large, Finely Chopped)
  • Green Chillies – 3 (Finely Chopped, Adjust to your taste)
  • Garam Masala – A Generous Pinch
  • Oil – 2-3 Tablespoon (For tava Frying)
  • Salt – To taste

  • Grind the Sprouts with no or very little water into a Coarse paste.
  • You can grind it smooth too, I prefer Coarse texture so I grinded it coarsely.
  • Grinding it coarsely would ensure that it is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the coarsely grinded Sprouts, Mashed Potato, Onions, Green Chillies, Garam masala and Salt and Mix well.
  • If you grind the Sprouts with no Water at all, then you can use only half of the potato.
  • As usual, rest it for 15 minutes so flavors deepens.
  • Then take lemon sized Balls of the prepared mixture and shape it into Tikkis.
  • Heat the Tava with 2 tablespoon of Oil and once the oil is hot arrange these tikkis.
  • Allow them to cook on Medium Heat on each side for 5 minutes and Serve.

  • If you grind the Moong with no Water, you need not add Potatoes too.
  • If you are uncomfortable using Potatoes due to health reasons then you can use 1 or 2 slices of Bread, Besan, Rice Flour, Kuttu, Even Wheat Flour
  • Experiment with flavours using Chilly powders, Ginger Garlic paste etc.
  • Cook on Medium Flame to ensure that the Moong is cooked.
