Chaat/Bhel is an Indian street style savory snack recipe made using puffed rice, veggies, chutneys, and spices. There are many popular versions of chaats sold by vendors in markets or streets of India. It tastes so delicious with savory, sweet, and spicy flavors.
In this sprout chaat recipe, I mixed cooked sprouts, puffed rice, and chivda/chewda mixture typically known as Farsan with the sprouts. I also added a few veggies, groundnuts, a drizzle of lime juice, and seasonings like chili powder, chaat masala, and salt.
In this sprouts chaat recipe, I used Sprouted Moth Beans. It is also known as Matki in Maharashtrian cuisine. Few well-known dishes like Misal Pav, Matki curry, Matki salad, etc are made from this moth bean. Matki is a good source of proteins and vitamins. They are high in fiber. Nowadays you can easily find these moth beans online or at local grocery shops. In Maharashtra, Sprouted moth beans are easily available at vegetable shops. You can easily prepare them at home.
Do you know that sprouting of beans improves the absorption of vitamins and minerals in our body? Yes, that’s true. It improves digestion and prevents constipation due to high fiber content. Hence, this sprout chaat is one of my healthy and nutritious street chaats. Matki bhel is healthy and low in calories so great for people who want to shred their kilos.
If you are not a fan of Moth bean or Matki then you can replace it with one of your choice of any sprouted beans. You can also customize it with sprouts like chana or moong, veggies like cucumber, tomato, onions, carrots, beetroot, fruits like grapes, pomegranate, or raw mango to enhance health quotient. Top this Matki bhel with some Coriander leaves or Cilantro for some color and flavor.
