Horse Gram is one of the nutritional stuff among Sprout varieties which all might not prefer. It is high in Protein and Iron and also acts as an important food that helps to reduce the cholesterol levels. It has good benefits in reduction of Cholesterol and also for weight loss. It has the capacity to dissolve kidney stones and also a weight reducing agent. I had tried this dish as an evening snack and it came out well. Normally children would not have sprouts, vegetables. Mixing them in this manner and preparing it as a Vada will make children’s eat them well. Note : If you want to prepare this in short time, you can soak the Horse gram in hot water for 30 minutes and then do the preparation. But normal soaking would give you very soft vadas.
