Everybody yearns for a treat once in a while! Here is a perfectly enjoyable snack, made keeping diabetic norms in mind. These scrumptious Moong Sprouts and Spring Onion Tikkis are made with fibre and iron-rich moong sprouts bound together by oats flour, which contains betaglucan, a unique type of soluble fibre that helps control blood sugar.

Spring onion whites and greens enhance the flavour, texture and aroma of this tasty tikki, which is made with very little oil to make it suitable for diabetics with heart problems too.

To make a satiating meal take a Tortilla , spread some Mint and Onion Chutney and Cabbage, Carrot and Lettuce Salad , place two tikkis on top and wrap it up.

Loved the combination of ingredients and spices... Oats flour worked very well as a binding agent in these tikkis. I will try using it while making other tikkis too instead of potatoes so as to go easy on carbs.
