Sprouted Moong Gram Stuffed Paratha

I had some sprouted moong gram and was not in a mood to make any salad. Tried these healthy parathas and it tasted very nice. It is an easy recipe with not much ingredients and can be put in a category of healthy lunch box ideas. Do try

 You need
  • Sprouted moong gram - 1 cup
  • Ginger - a small piece chopped
  • Green chilli - 2 chopped
  • Onion - 1 small chopped
  • Coriander leaves - 1  bunch chopped
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Wheat flour - 2 cups
  • Water as required 
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for sauteeing

  • Make a dough out of wheat flour adding required amount of water. Keep aside.
  • Cook sprouted moong gram adding enough salt. Keep aside (avoid over cooking)
  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan. Add chopped ginger, green chilli and onion.
  • Saute until it turns light brown.
  • Add turmeric powder and salt (remember you've cooked sprouts with salt).
  • Saute and add moong gram sprouts. Mix well and add chopped coriander leaves. 
  • Stir fry on low flame for 5 minutes and switch off. 

  • Make a lemon size ball out of the dough prepared earlier. 
  • Make a small hole in the center and spoon 1 tbsp of sprout mix. Cover the hole with dough
