Sprouted Moong Dhokla

Off-late I have posted a lot of dessert recipes :) So now it is time for a healthy tea time snack - Sprouted moong dhokla. Loaded with the goodness of green gram sprouts and the flavorful coriander leaves. This recipe is inspired from Tarla Dalal site. The original recipe uses spinach and fenugreek leaves. I didn't have both at hand, so replaced with coriander leaves and loved the flavor! Try this simple, quick and healthy snack and enjoy it with you tea.

  • Sprouted whole green gram - 1 cup *
  • Green chilli - 2-3
  • Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup, finely chopped **
  • Besan - 2 teaspoons
  • Curds - 2 tablespoons
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Salt - as needed
  • Sugar - 1/4 teaspoon, optional
  • Fruit salt - 1 teaspoon (I used regular eno fruit salt)

* If you do not have sprouts, soak whole green gram in water for 2-4 hours
** Coriander leaves can be replaced with spinach(palak) or fenugreek leaves (methi)

  1. Grind the sprouts and green chillies into a smooth paste by adding little water
  2. In a mixing bowl add the ground paste and all other ingredients except the fruit salt and mix very well
  3. Finally add the fruit salt and sprinkle little water over it. When bubbles start appearing, mix the batter very gently and pour it immediately in a greased plate/thali dish/dhokla stand
  4. Steam it for 10 minutes. Allow it to cool a little, cut into cubes and serve with green chutney or ketchup
