Green Gram Pancakes or Mung Bean Pancakes

A Nutritious and Healthy Breakfast

Green gram (mung beans) are known to contain high level of protein and dietary fiber. They are a good source of iron, manganese, potassium, folate, copper, zinc, and vitamins. People use them extensively in their daily food. You can use them either raw or cooked.

Mung bean pancakes are very soft, aromatic, and delicious. You can eat 2-3 of them at a time, as they are filling. I used onions, ginger, capsicum, green chilies, and coriander leaves along with the mung beans. This is an easy recipe. You will not go wrong with this dish, even if you are a beginner cook.

Once the batter is ready, making the pancakes does't need much time. You can make a pancake in about 3-4 minutes. Serve hot pancakes with pickle, chutney or tomato sauce. Tomato pickle pairs very well with these pancakes.

Now, let me show you in detail how to make green gram (mung bean) pancakes.
