Toasted Bread Bites with Sprouts and Curd



This is essentially a low-cal chaat. In summers quite often you just feel like having salads, cool fruits and curd based dishes. So I whipped this up the other day and boy was it refreshing.

I have been making this since many years and we love it everytime and it is something I can indulge in without thinking of the calories.

Ingredients

4 slices whole wheat bread,
1 cup sprouted moong beans,
1 ½ cup whipped curd,
Salt to taste,
Spicy green chutney as required,
Sweet tamarind chutney as required,
Roasted cumin powder as required,
Roasted chilli powder as required,
Black salt,
½ cup pomegranate seeds

Method

Cut the bread into bite-sized pieces and toast till it is crisp.

Slightly steam the moong beans with a bit of salt. Add salt to the whipped curd.

Arrange the bread pieces on a plate and spoon the steamed moong sprouts on top of the bread pieces. Sprinkle the roasted cumin powder, roasted chilli powder and black salt over it, also drizzle the green chutney and the sweet tamarind chutney.

Spoon the curds over and again sprinkle some roasted cumin powder, roasted chilli powder and black salt. Spread some pomegranate seeds over and serve immediately.



It is important to serve it immediately or else the bread will turn soggy.
