I do prepare sprouts at home whenever i feel like cooking with sprouts, one of the most common sprouts i like to make and cook with is the famous protein packed green moongdal sprouts. I prepared few green moongdal sprouts last weekend at home and prepared with them these beautiful crispy vadas for the Tamil new year celebration. Seriously this vadas are simply awesome, tastes exactly like our usual channadal masal vadas.
They goes awesome as side dish as well as an excellent evening snacks when served along with some spicy chutney.Sprouted moongdal suits tremendousmy awesome for making this healthy fritters,yep since they have prepared with sprouts eventhough they are deep fried, these vadas are definitely healthy.We couldnt stop munching them and enjoyed along with sago kheer.Sending this vadas to my own event Healthy Diet-Cooking with Sprouts hosted by Roshni and to Only Legumes guest hosted by Nalini,event by Pari.
