I am so so so fond of these chilas or dosas that I keep bringing variations in it. Few days back I enjoyed Moong bean sprouts chila. Chila or dosa whatever you name it, they are the same.
Sprouting of beans is easiest among all and making moong sprouts at home is better than market's ready made ones.
Now why I took sprouts? They are wonder food due to its high nutritive value. Dont tell me you know little about this healthy food. Not to worry, I am here to educate about ingredients I always pick. Sprouts are good for healthy body and mind development. It purifies blood, strengthen immune system. Sprouts are no less than a medicine.
These are germinated seeds of legumes which are full of health promoting qualities, packed with adequate protien and calcium. If you want to reduce weight, you must include this high fibre food because of its preserving and promoting health aspects.
Sprouts are rich in fibre, nutrients, enzymes, protiens and are low in calories. However, you must take care while using sprouts as they easily gets infected with fungus. Stale, stinking and blacken or dull sprouts should not be used. Cooking of sprouts must be discouraged so that it does not loose nutrition whereas raw sprouts are better but people allergic to it or if have gastic problem can steam for easy digestion.
As I cant digest raw sprouts I always use /eat steamed or little cooked.
Here I have taken moong bean which is rich in Vitamin A, E and C. Sprouts chila makes a good healthy breakfast.
