Sprouted Moong Beans Spinach Poori

I planned on making dosa, was doing it almost every week, felt bored to eat dosa again. As I poured the ground batter into a bowl, kept thinking how boring to eat dosa again and again. Why not eat something else, why not Poori for a change and completely transformed the dough from dosa batter to Poori batter and fried pooris for a change. Day 1 we had 5 pooris. By the time we ate 3, we were full. This poori is quite protein rich because of Sprouted moong beans. The second day I made, we just ate 3 each.

You can easily use the same recipe for making parathas. It becomes an healthier version with all nutrients.


  1. 2 cups Whole wheat flour
  2. 1 cup spinach leaves – washed
  3. 1 cup sprouted moong beans or hesaru kalu
  4. 1/4 inch ginger
  5. 3-4 green chillies
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  7. Water to mix
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil to fry


In a mixer, grind the sprouted moong beans, washed spinach, ginger, green chillies and salt and grind to a smooth paste. In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, cumin seeds, ground mixture. Knead well to make a soft dough. I didn’t need any water. I had maybe 1/4 cup of water while grinding and so used the same.

Roll poori and fry in oil.

I served with potato, tomato, capsicum curry.

    Am I invited?? the next time you make it?? LOL

    Jokes apart, this looks delicious, Poori’s are almost banned at home, wife thinks the oil hurts us

    Did you try Avacado Paratha?

    Ripe Avacado –> scoop it out & mash it into a paste and knead it with the wheat flour, Add water sparingly. mashing it separately is recommended as avocado -even the ripe ones- do not mix well with the flour, it tends to be lumpy.

    The ratio is 1 avocado for 3 “Avocado Parathas. After a few trials, you may adjust it to suit your taste

    It does not need much oil addition, as the oils in Avacado are released while heating

    If you tried already,, great,, is it not?

    If you have not tried it so far,, please do, you will relish it.

    2 Parathas are really filling

    Bon Appetit !!
