About this recipe:People say healthy eating is not tasty eating. Well I am determined to prove them wrong. This recipe has the goodness of vitamins particularly Vitamin C from green mung beans, aka green gram sprouts, and fibre from oats. It will be really good with a good cup of coffee or tea and some gossip with your friends.
Soak the gram or mung beans in warm water for 4 hours or overnight.
Drain the beans and rinse well. Place in a microwave safe bowl with some water and cook on High in the microwave for 10 minutes, or until the beans are so soft that they can be mashed with the back of a spoon. Mix in the oats; it should reach the consistency of a very thick batter or a sticky dough.
In a separate bowl mix together the flour, chilli powder and salt with 60ml of water. Pour in the water little by little so that there are no lumps and it forms a thick batter. Add the bean and oat mixture and mix well. Now, add the rest of the ingredients except for the oil.
Heat a non stick pan with oil. Use a tablespoon to drop 6 to 7 individual spoons of the batter into the pan. Reduce heat and fry in each side for at least 6 to 7 minutes. This is the most important step, dry fry them on both sides over a low heat to achieve that crisp golden brown texture.
