Sprouted moong (mung bean) pesarattu by Priya of Sugarfree SweetheartComments : 13 Posted in : Recipes of fellow bloggers, snack, sprouting on by : apsara Tags: healthy pancake, mung sprouts, pesarattu, savory pancake, vegan pancake
I have started a new category in my blog- with recipes of fellow bloggers that I have tried and really like. Kind of a re-blog, with my notes on it.
One of my favorite recipes that I often make and my family loves is the pancake or pesarattu made with sprouted mung beans. It can be made in a jiffy if you have the sprouts readily available. Thank you, Priya, I love this simple and healthy recipe of yours!
You can find her recipe here:
1. I use my sprouter to fully sprout mung beans, and store the sprouts in the freezer. When needed, I add hot water to it and use it right away.
2. I add a pinch of cardamom powder and one clove while I make the batter, for added flavor. The result is awesome.

Oh yay! Thanks so much for trying and posting about it! Looks so familiar.. ha ha! I’m going to try adding cinnamon and cardamom next time! 🙂
it’s my pleasure! the clove and cardamom are my mother-in-law’s idea. Maybe there is some ancient wisdom in the combination.
So lovely to honour the people whose recipes you’ve tried ☺️
yes, Elaine, can’t help giving credit for great ideas!
Thanks for posting that. It is new to me, as is Priya’s blog. I hope to try it soon.
Wow! I always add some rice also to Pesarattu…i see this is only moong. Should try it sometime.
yes, I did too, before seeing this recipe. 🙂
Apsara, I have made pesarattu many times before, but i tried it with sprouted moong for the first time for dinner today….it was awesome and yes, the clove and cardamom made a difference…i powdered the cardamom and clove to get a uniform taste before i added it to the batter and it was totally worth it…thanks for the tip. Also I made the crepe on stovetop, sprinkled some chutney powder and loaded it with chopped onions, grated carrots, bell peppers and tomatoes and cooked it with a covered lid. It made the base crisp like pizza and with the toppings added, i did not even feel the need to make any chutney:)
awesome, Kripa! I really like the pizza-type idea. It would be a novelty for the kids. 🙂
oops…i meant i sprinkled some milagai podi…
