Potato Canapes With Sprouted Moong Bean

Moong bean is rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and low in fat. Sprouted moong is even more nutritious and I often include it in the diet, mostly as salads, simple chaats or stirfry. This time I did some variation as per the ingredients availability at home and adapted a bookmarked recipe from here.



Ingredients

2 big sized potato, washed, peeled and sliced into 1/2" thickness discs
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup whole green moong, sprouted
1 onion medium sized, finely chopped
1 tomato medium sized, finely chopped
Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
3 -4 tbsp Tomato sauce + Chilli sauce or Pizza sauce [ You can substitute this with barbecue sauce or with green chutney and sweet chutney]
Grated mozzarella cheese as topping [optional]
Salt as per taste

Method

Microwave potato slices [dipped in water] for 2 minutes. Drain the water and pat the slices dry. Toss these slices in olive oil and a pinch of salt. See to it that slices get coated with oil. Spread these slices in a single layer on baking sheet [I used aluminium foil] and bake them in preheated oven at 200°C  for 20-30 minutes, turning half way until golden brown.

Meanwhile in a bowl mix sprouted moong, finely chopped onions, finely chopped tomatoes, coriander leaves, salt as per taste.

Remove the baking tray and spread a spoonful of the mixture over each potato slice. Top with pizza sauce/ tomato sauce + chili sauce and grated mozzarella cheese. Bake it for another 2-3 minutes. Serve it as snack or starter!



Note: 
You can add chaat powder, kala namak, red chili powder, lemon juice and sev if you use sweet chutney and green chutney instead of sauces.
You can use other pulses/ beans in place of whole green gram.
