                                 Fibre and Vitamins infused vegetarian fritters

People say healthy eating is not tasty eating. Well I am determined to prove them wrong today. 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/tea and some gossips with your friends.Check out the ingredients below

Serves 3-4 people
Preparation time 15 mins
Cooking time 15-20 minutes

  • 3/4 cup green gram or mung beans soaked in warm water for at least 4 hours or overnight
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour  or plain flour
  • 4 tablespoon oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt or as per taste
  • 1/2 a onion  finely chopped
  • 1 small capsicum/bell pepper finely chopped
  • 2-3 pieces of cheese triangles broken into rough cubes 
  • 1-2 tablespoon oil for frying
Your green grams must have softened after being soaked in warm water. Put them in a sieve and rinse them well. In a microwave safe bowl put some water and the green grams together to boil approximately for 10 mins in high in order to achieve a consistency whereby it can be mashed with the back of a spoon.Mix together the oats and mash it well, 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 1/2 cup of water. Pour the water little by little so that there are no lumps and it forms a thick batter. Add the beans and oats mixture and mix it very well. Now, add the rest of the ingredients and it is ready to fry.

Heat a non stick pan with 1-2 tablespoon oil. Use a tablespoon to drop 6-7 individual spoons of the batter into the pan. Bring the gas flame to low and fry in each side for at least 6-7 minutes. This is the most important step, dry fry them in both sides in slow flame to achieve that crisp golden brown texture.
Enjoy them with your spicy dose of afternoon gossip!!!
