Mung Bean Pancakes | High Protein Recipe

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all doing good. Today, 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 J. 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.

  • Mung beans- 1 cup (you can also use sprouted mung beans for a more healthy option)

  1. its the famous south indian recipe pesarattu(pesara-mong, attu-dosa), and try upma along with it, u need to prepare upma seperately then u need to spread upma on dosa when it is half cooked, then after done, fold to half (dnt flip), in tiffin centers it is served as upma-pesarattu, very famous, and very tasty

  2. This is super easy, will make this for breakfast over the weekend. I’ll make it with besan too instead of rice flour since I have that readily at home! 🙂

  3. i make these whole moong cheelas for breakfast frequently but i don’t add any besan or rice flour to it, just add whole black pepper,hing and salt while gringing. Have it with crumbled paneer inside.
    Very filling and very tasty:)
