Moong sprouts have a crisp texture, and slightly sweet nutty taste that fit well into any recipe. Bound together by cooked rice and flavoured with fresh mint, green chilli paste and lemon juice, the moong sprouts make an excellent dough for succulent tikkis. Cooked with minimal oil on a tava, the Moong Sprouts and Rice Tikki turns out into a perfectly golden, crisp snack that is further pepped up with a sprinkling of chaat masala, and served with green chutney and tomato ketchup.

Great combination of the sprouts and rice.. the cooked rice added gives a nice binding to the tikkis.. And the minty flavour and taste goes really very well.. I enjoyed this with tomato ketchup..
