Moong Sprouts - Aloo Tikki



I made these patties/tikkis today with some leftover homemade green gram sprouts I had and surprisingly, they turned out to be very addictive. I couldn't stop at 1 or 2 and was craving for more. These spicy patties obviously have a southern touch. They have a crispy exterior and soft interior with sprouts in between that not only add a crunch but make these patties special.

Ingredients for 8 tikkis / patties:
2 potatoes (about 1 cup cooked & mashed potato)
1/2 cup moong sprouts
2 minced green chillies
1/2 tsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp each - minced cilantro & curry leaves
2 Tbsp besan + 1 Tbsp rice flour*
Salt to taste
Oil to pan fry the patties
* I fried half of the batch and realized that I had bread crumbs in freezer and so added about 1/4 cup crumbs to the other half batch. If you don't have the flours, substitute 1/2 cup bread crumbs instead.


Method:
* Mix well all the ingredients with out adding water. Divide the mixture into 8 portions. Roll each portion into a ball. Grease your palms and shape the balls into patties.
* Place them on a shallow pan, add a few tsps of oil and fry them on low flame until golden on both sides.
They are spicy enough to be served on their own or can be served with ketchup. Or else they can be used in ragda patties recipe as well.
