As part of my gluten-free initiative, I have introduced this healthy snack for my afternoon break. This recipe is basically a no-sweat three step process. The healthier alternative to frying the cakes would be to add ¼ cup water to the ground mixture and pan fry it in non-stick pan without oil.
Moong Dal(green gram) – 1 cup soaked overnight
Tuvar Dal(split pigeon peas) – 1/2 cup soaked overnight
Quick Oats – 1 cup
Crushed Garlic– 2 cloves(optional)
Green Chilli- deseeded and finely chopped
Cumin powder-1 tsp
Red chilli powder- 1 tsp
Black pepper powder -1 tsp
Salt- 1 tsp
Oil for frying
Grind all the above ingredients to form a coarse paste. Shape the paste into small round cakes/cutlets. Deep fry in hot oil and serve the crunchy cakes piping hot with yoghurt dipping or sauce.
