It is believed that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, keeping that in mind here is my Healthy Sprouts Pancake. A protein packed flavourful pancake that can be enjoyed by adults and kids.
The lovely ladies of Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge after visiting different states now were looking at doing something different and decided to try various types of pancakes. During my search for a very different recipe, i decided to concentrate on my strength of a known, tried and tested recipe. So after thinking a lot decided to make my own Healthy Sprouts Pancake.
My partner for this round was Jayashree who blogs at Ever Green Dishes. After a lot of discussion we decided on the secret ingredient that the other person should work with and create a unique and tasty dish. Jayashree gave me Idli rice and black channa as secret ingredients to work with and in return gave her oats and curd. Jayashree made amazing Wheat and oats pancake

How to make Healthy Sprouts Pancake and eat it too !!!
Step 1: Make sprouts 🙂 – I usually make a mix of multiple lentils – green moong, black channa, black udad and methi seeds. I take about 1 cup of Green moong, 1/2 cup of black udad, 1/2 cup of black channa and 3 tbsp of methi seeds in a large bowl. Wash the lentils nicely to remove any dirt or stones. Soak these lentils for atleast 8 hours. Once the lentils are soaked, drain the water and pour these lentils on a thin cotton cloth and tie the cloth in a knot. Leave the lentils inside the cloth for over 10 hours and then see the beautiful sprouts sprouting 😀
Step 2 : Grind the sprouts with soaked rice with sprouts into a fine batter
Step 3: Make pancakes on a hot tawa or gridle
Step 4: Eat it hot with chutney or jaggery
