Sprouted Green Gram Pancake

#SproutedGreengramAdai : Sprouting increases the nutritional value of green gram especially protein content compared to dry green gram. The protein, vitamins and minerals content increase considerably when sprouted.

So it is advisable to include nutrient rich sprouts in our daily food  in some form.
Here I prepared a pancake using green gram sprouts.
