We usually associate chaat with unhealthy fried foods or ones that have been cooked using loads of oil.
Sprouted Moong Chaat is a healthy variation which has all the flavour and none of the calories we relate chaat with.
Sprouts provide plenty of protein, vitamin C and iron to your diet and the protein content is further enhanced by the addition of steamed gram flour dumplings.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a smooth dough.
- Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
- Grease your hands using ½ tsp of oil and shape each portion into a cylindrical roll of 6 mm. (1/4 ") in length and 25 mm. (1") in diameter.
- Arrange the rolls on a greased plate and steam in a steamer for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Cool completely and slice the rolls into small pieces. Keep aside.
- Heat the remaining oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds, fennel seeds and asafoetida.
- When the seeds crackle, add the onions, turmeric powder and green chilli and sauté on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes.
- Add the moong sprouts, salt and ¼ cup of water and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes.
- Add the prepared dumplings, chaat masala, sugar and lemon juice, mix well and cook on a medium flame for a few more seconds.
- Serve hot.
