Sprouted Moong & Oats Kunukku

Kunukku is a savoury snacks which is usually prepared with a special batter made with variety of dals..Kunukku, when served along with chutney is a delicious savoury snack also at the same time its a healthy snacks eventhough its deep fried ...This time i prepared this fabulous, crispy and nutritious kunukku with sprouted whole moong beans along with rolled oats..Yesterday its was rainy and cloudy day, we felt like having something as deep fried snacks to enjoy with some hot tea for our snack but as usual i have sprouted some whole moong recently and i was really planning to make some deep fried snacks with those sadly sitting moong sprouts, finally i prepared a simple batter using sprouted moong beans,oats,brown rice along with onions, grated coconut,green chillies and chopped ginger for making these crispy beauties..

Sprouted Moong & Oats Kunukku

2cups Sprouted whole moong
1cup Rolled oats
1/2cup Brown rice
1no Onion (chopped)
1/4cup Grated coconut
3nos Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ginger (chopped)
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil for deepfrying

Soak brown rice for an hour and the rolled oats for half an hour...Grind sprouted moong, soaked oats, soaked brown rice,grated coconut with green chillies and chopped ginger as coarse paste, now add the chopped onions, few curry leaves and salt, mix everything well..

Heat the oil for deep frying, make small balls from the batter and fry them until the dropped balls turns golden brown, drain the excess of oil..Enjoy with spicy coconut chutney...

Hi Priya,

It is an interesting recipe!

I do not know from where I will get the brown rice. May be I will have to search the nearby grocery stores. I never prepared anything with it before.

Is this what you referred?

Trying fried recipes during rainy season is nostalgia. My mother used to prepare bhajiya and fried peanuts and we used to enjoy it during rains, in the cold wind.

hmm... I tried to prepare them but not a taste as my mother prepares. I think its time for me to be at home.
