Makes -20 of the above size

Good to remember:

1. Use quality Moong bean to sprout properly.

2. One can use any sprouted grain for this dish.  I have also used oats from health point of view but one can surely avoid if not essential.

3. One can even deep fry these cutlets but mine is always a shallow fried option.
