Think you don’t like sprouts? This tempting sprout recipe will change your mind, be a kid, young or a senior. Sprouts served as are commonly eaten raw, steamed in salads, chaat as cold food and also cooked dry or gravy. But mostly not liked by kids and young children.
My daughter is health conscious and avoids all kinds of deep fired and oily food. But at the same times she is super foodie and chatori. Daily I have to find out ways and means to prepare a dish with minimam oil, baked or grilled food. Her desire keeps me going and try out such dishes.
She loves sprout and they are said to be rich in digestible energy, vitamins, minerals and protein. These nutrients are important for human health.
So this is a no fry snack which goes great in breakfast with a glass of juice or lassi or as tea time evening snack.
I have prepared the sprouts at home and used Kaale chane (Whole Bengal gram), Sabut Moong (Green Gram whole) Moth bean, Soya bean whole. The sprout variety could be of personal choice and could be added or not as per availability.
- Mixed bean sprout 2 cups ( )
- Soaked soya beans ½ cup
- Chopped onion ½ cup
- Chopped coriander leaves ½ cup
- Grated ginger 1 tblspn
- Chopped green chili 1 tblspn
- Cumin seeds 1 tblspn
- Salt ¾ tblspn
- Olive oil for 1 tblspn
Grind all the sprout and soaked soya beans. Use as little water as possible during grinding. It will be better if you grind without water in food processor. It will make a course paste depending on the type of food processor you are having. If it is too course then add water and grind again or transfer it to the wet grinding jar to get fine grinding.
Transfer in a bowl. Add all dry ingredients I teaspn oil. Make a wet dough like we get for flat patty. You may get 15-16 patties out of it.
Pre heat Air fryer in 200 degrees. Brush the base with oil. For 1st timers, its better to spread a perforated silver foil at the base and brush it with oil. The dough is wet and sometimes the patty sticks at the base and breaks while flipping. So with silver foil it becomes easy.
Arrange the patties over the foil. Set timer for 5-7 mins. Take out the tray, you may find the upper layer browned. Flip it and put back the tray for another 5 mins. Cooking.
Crispy kebabs are ready to serve. Enjoy with green chutney.
I prepared both type of Kebabs today one deep fried another no fry kebab. In the below plate I have showcased both types for people to view and compare. By look you cannot judge which is non fried and taste also both are equally delicious.
Goes best with tangy green chutney.(Recipe here)
