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.


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


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!

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.
