Moong Sprouts Dhokla


I'm back to dhokla mode again.  The thing I love about dhoklas are they are easy to make and twist them to your choice by adding different ingredients.  If I'm right I think I came across these dhoklas in Tarla dalas recipe.  I also don't remember whether it was just with moong beans or sprouted moong beans but I made it with moong sprouts, as sprouts always double the nutrients in the food.  I started using sprouts in my diets only after looking Priya's recipes with sprouts.  Thanks to Priya for introducing this wonderful world of sprouts. This would be an ideal breakfast or a healthy snack for your kids.  If you don't know how to make your own sprouts, please check it out here.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves 4 to 5

Ingredients:

Wheat Rava or Semolina- 3/4 cup
Oats- 1/2 cup powdered
Moong Sprouts puree- 1/2 cup
Yogurt- 1 1/2 cup
Bicarbonate of soda- 3/4 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Seasoning:
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Fresh grated coconut- 1 tbsp
Moong Sprouts - 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves- 2 stalk finely chopped
Oil- 1/2 tbsp

Note:
1 cup= 250 ml

Method:
Mix the wheat rava, salt, and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl.  Add the moong sprouts puree and 1/2 cup of yogurt mix it well.  Then add the remaining 1 cup of yogurt and mix it well.  Pour it in a greased pan.  Steam it for 10 minutes.  To check wheather it's cooked insert a skewer and if it comes out clean then it's cooked.
For seasoning heat the oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds when it starts spluttering, add the moong sprouts and grated coconut stir it for 2 minutes. Pour it on top of the dhokla.  Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
To make Moong Sprouts puree:
Take 1 cup of Moong Sprouts  and blend it by adding little water.  If you like it more spicy you can also add some 1 green chilly when grinding.

Dokla looks so spongy and inviting. Last time when I was in india we had Dokla at Saravana Bhavan. I still remember the spongy taste. With Moong Sprouts this is a healthy version too. Shall try surely sometime :-)
