Sprouted Lentils Vada (Deep Fried Lentil Patties)

It has been a hectic week so far. Decided to take some time off from laptop in the evening and spend time in kitchen to try different item. Searched pantry and found sprouted beans which I bought from Costco. First thing came to my mind was why can't I make masala vada with these sprouted beans? End up giving a try. End result - Yummy crunchy vada.
Next time when you have guests try these yummy vadas instead of regular Masala Vadas. I am sure your friends will love these and will ask for recipe.



2 cups of sprouted beans
1 tsp all purpose flour (this helps to keep the patty shape while you are frying)
1 small onion chopped (don't chop too thin/small)
7-8 Green chilies (Adjust as per your spice)
1/2 inch Ginger
3 garlic flakes
salt to taste
Dil greens/Coriander leaves.
Oil to deep fry



1. Soak lentils for 30 mts. In a blender soaked lentils,green chilies, garlic, ginger, and Salt into coarse paste(don't make it too smooth).

2. To the lentil mixture add chopped onions, all purpose flour, chopped greens(dil or coriander. I used to scissors to finely chop greens) and mix(spice lovers can add chopped chilies.). Adjust spices.

3. Take 1 tbsp of mixture make a small lemon sized ball and pat it with fingers. Slowly glide these patties in hot oil. Deep fry on medium heat. Once they turn golden color remove it from the oil.



Serve with Ketchup.
