Sprouted Moong dhokla is a delicious and healthy snack or breakfast that is not only tasty but also packed with nutrients.

Dhokla !

Dhokla is a popular Indian snack that originated in the state of Gujarat. It is made from a fermented batter of gram flour (besan) and yogurt, which is spiced with green chilies, ginger, and turmeric. The batter is then steamed to create a soft and spongy texture. Dhokla is typically served with a drizzle of tempered mustard seeds and curry leaves on top, along with a side of tangy chutney made from tamarind or mint. It is a light and healthy snack that is loved for its tangy and slightly sweet flavor. Dhokla can be enjoyed as a breakfast dish, an appetizer, or even as a light meal. Its unique taste and texture make it a favorite among both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

Here I have come up with a dhokla using moong sprouts.

The sprouted moong dhokla is light and fluffy, and its flavor is enhanced by the addition of sprouts. The sprouts just simply boost the nutritional value of the dish here. The sprouts not only add a unique twist to the traditional dhokla but also provide a good source of protein, fiber, and vitamins.

Sprouted Moong dhokla is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed in various ways. It can be served as is, with a side of chutney or yogurt, or even topped with a tempering of mustard seeds and curry leaves for an extra burst of flavor.

Overall, sprouted dhokla is a perfect combination of taste and health, making it a delightful choice for any time of the day.
