Mung Bean Pancakes | High Protein Recipe
Hope you are all doing good after a lot of heavy Christmas feasting. I am sure you are planning to eat healthy and lighter from today.
Keeping that in mind, I am sharing a recipe with you all. I am a vegetarian and so it becomes very difficult for me to find some good protein sources that are not too high in carbs. So I tried these pancakes, and they turned out excellent, in fact they have now become a staple at my place and have replaced the regular Dosas. And are made once every 10 days. Mung beans are very good for health, they are very low in fat as well. They are an excellent source of amino acids and proteins and also a good amount of fiber. And the best thing they are low in calories, a cup of mung beans contain around 60 calories.
So lets get started, You can call it Mung bean pancakes, Dosas, etc.
Ingredients- Serves -2
- Mung beans- 1 cup (you can also use sprouted mung beans for a more healthy option)
- Green chilli ginger paste- 1 tbsp
- Salt to taste
