Healthy Green-gram Methi Tikki

On friday when we were chatting I invited mami to come home as mamaji was at home she accepted ... It all happened in aminute that I dint know what to make i had green gram soaked for making green gram sabzi for dinner then it hit me like flash why not try greengram methi tikki low oil version so the recipe was born...  Sorry the picture is not good as i took it in hurry from my mobile...


Green grams -  1 cup
Methi leaves - 1 cup
bread crumbs/ rusk - 1/2 cup
green chillies - 2
ginger - 1/4 inch
garlic 2-3 cloves
Goda masala - 1 tsp
Dhaniya powder - 1tsp
Chilly powder 1 tsp
Amchur powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil 2 tsp
salt as per taste


         Pre soak green gram (saboot moong) for 4- 5 hours and boil it in cooker for 1 whistle, drain and cool
         Wash methi leaves let the excess water drain away and chop it finely...
         First powder the bread crumbs/rusk which ever you are using keep aside..
         Grind green chillies, ginger, garlic and then add the cooked drain grams grind to fine paste and take it in a bowl ..
         Mix powdered breadcrumbs/rusks and green gram paste, 1tsp oil and all the other ingredients.. and make small tikkis
         Line the tandoor tray with aluminium foil and drizzle with oil insert into tandoor
         Pre heat electric tandoor for 2 minutes and take out the tray and place the tikkis and put in oven
         Let it bake for 3 minutes until nicely brown switch off the oven let the tray remain for 2 more minutes..
         Take it out and serve hot with tomato sauce..

       If you dont have tandoor or oven you can shallow fry it like dosa or deep fry it...
       Many variations can be tried with grated carrot and other vegetables and greens...
