No Deepfry Spiced Sprouted Chickpeas Balls/Kondakadalai Kola Urundai

Sprouts, i cant give up this protein packed stuffs never ever in my life. I started sprouting beans and wholegrains at home just few years back when i wasnt able to get them here. Sprouting is just a child play, anyone can make sprouts at home easily. Some makes their sprouts by using kitchen gadgets or simply with a muslin cloth or else with hot pack vessels. Using hotpack vessels for making sprouts is definitely one of the easiest way of making sprouts at home. Soak the beans you want to sprout a day before, next day, drain the water and drop the soaked beans in hotpack, close it and keep it in room temperature for a day, trust me the next day you can see the sprouts already. Use those sprouts in your cooking, this is how am making my sprouts and this method sounds easy na. I have prepared some chickpeas sprouts last week, after making kuzhambus and masala vadas with this incredible sprouts, i finished the leftovers as this delicious kola urundais.Sending to Kids's Delight - Healthy Snack Box hosted by Harini,event by Srivalli.

Interesting balls with sprouts. And it is not deep fried! I use to make sprouts at home and use to sprout very nicely. These days I am having trouble with it. Will try the hot pack method next time.
