  1.  
    Here is a super  Healthy Moong Chaat recipe ( Sprouted Moong Chaat).  Chaat are savoury/ sweet snack popular around India. Generally it is made using a myriad of ingredients like chutneys, spices, tikki, samosa, ragda, sev, papdi, puri, boondi etc. But, you can make healthy chaat recipes using nutritious ingredients like mixed sprouts, boiled moong, chickpeas, low-fat curd and vegetables. Listing down some of my favorite healthy chaat recipes:

For sprouting moong:

  1. For making moong sprouts, pick and clean the mung beans. Wash them in a bowl of water 3-4 times or under running water.
  2. Combine approx. ½ cup moong and enough water in a deep bowl.
  3. Cover with a lid and keep aside to soak for 6 hours or overnight.
  4. Drain completely and place them in a strainer or tie them in a muslin cloth.
  5. Cover it with a lid and keep aside in a warm place to sprout for 10 to 12 hours, toss them once or twice in between.
  6. After one day, you will see small sprouts. For longer sprouts, you can keep them for another day. Keep the moong sprouts aside.

For cooking mung sprouts:

  1. For making the healthy moong chaat recipe, heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan.
  2. Add the mustard seeds.
  3. Add the cumin seeds.
  4. When the seeds crackle, add the curry leaves.
  5. Add the onions.
  6. Sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Add the ginger-garlic paste. I widely make use of ginger-garlic paste in cooking at my home kitchen hence, I store a jar full of ginger-garlic paste in the refrigerator.
  8. Add the chilli powder.
  9. Add the turmeric powder. All these Indian masalas provide a very nice flavour to the healthy moong chaat.
  10. Add the coriander-cumin seeds powder. Learn how to make freshly ground at home.
  11. Add the tomatoes.
  12. Add the sprouted moong. Sprouting any beans make them easier to digest and also, increases their nutrition.
  13. Add ¼ cup of water and salt.
  14. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes or till the moong is partially cooked, while stirring occasionally. Partially cooking helps in retaining the crunch of moong sprouts.
  15. Remove from the flame and allow it to cool slightly. You can enjoy the moong sprouts as it as after cooking or top it up with curds and veggies like we have done.
  16. Divide the sprouted mixture into two equal portions.

How to make healthy moong chaat:

  1. Place one portion of the sprouted moong mixture in a bowl.
  2. Pour 2 tbsp of fresh curds. We have used fresh homemade curd and whisked it before adding. Also, you can make use of low-fat curd.
  3. Sprinkle a little salt, 1 tbsp of onions.
