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.

Healthy sprouts pancake is an excellent option of a protein packed breakfast option for 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

Of late our family has been totally into healthy eating and as part of that we have increased the protein content in our diet. This Healthy Sprouts Pancake or Dosa is my go to breakfast option for a middle of the week kind of day.  Now let me give you insight on what goes into our Sprouts pancake..well everything. Its wonderful isn’t it? 🙂

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

 

Here are some more recipes for starting the day with a healthy breakfast ;

These are super healthy pancakes. I think addition of idli rice will make it easily spreadable. Will definitely try this dish. By the way presentation is superb.
