Sprouted Green Moong Parantha (Sprouted Green Gram Flat Bread)

I was watching Turban Tadka on FoodFood Channel which showed Chef Harpal cooking this parantha.

However, I was not able to watch the entire show so missed out on half of the recipe.

That did not stop me from trying this recipe though.

Green Gram are a great source for healthy skin & protect us against many illnesses.
Many call it POWER FOOD!
Most legumes when sprouted become an excellent source of nutrients! 
Most of us prepare either curries or salads out of these however try them on a parantha like I did & they will taste divine & super healthy ;)

We will need:

Wheat Flour - 3 cups
Gram Flour/Besan - 1 cup
Green Gram Sprouts/Ankurit Hara Moong Dal - 1 cup
Green Chillies - 3 finely chopped
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Dry Mango Powder/Amchoor Powder - 1tsp (if required)
Curd - 2 tbsp
Salt - as per taste
Water  - as required for making the dough
Oil/Ghee/Butter - for cooking


Boil the sprouts for half a minute to remove the pungent taste. Due to the sprouting process you will find a smell & taste which is pungent.
Now, combine all the ingredients together to prepare the dough.
Keep aside for about 30 mts & then roll them out round.
Heat your griddle & put the paranthas/flat breads on it & cook till you see a few spots on them.
Drizzle some oil/ghee/butter over this cook till done.

They will really taste wonderful & you will want to cook them often.
Perfect for breakfast & kid's tiffin box :)

You may serve them with sauce/chutney/dips/pickles & even with gravied potatoes.
You can put the sprouts in a blender & coarsely grind it & prepare the dough
I served it with the Gujarati Choondu - Sweet Mango Pickle & it was a HIT! :)
