Sprouted Moth Bean and Green gram vada with Broccoli

I had these sprouted moth beans sitting in my fridge for a few days now.....hence decided to make some vadas in combination with green gram.  And they turned out to be the perfect snack for a cold day!!!

1 cup sprouted moth beans
1/2 split green gram with skin
1/4 cup of chopped spring onions(white part)
handful of small broccoli florets processed
4 green chilies(about3/4 inch in length)
few corinader leaves
small ginger piece
salt to taste

Soak the green gram for 2 hrs.  Drain the water completely and grind into a coarse paste along with moth beans, chilies and ginger.  Towards the end add the coriander leaves and process it further.  To this paste add the onions, broccoli and salt and mix well.

Take a small portion of the mix, flatten it in your palm and deep fry in hot oil till a nice golden color.

Enjoy these crispies with some chutney or ketchup!!
