Mung Bean Crepes

Crepes can be a very delicious way to eat healthy.  You can make them in so many varieties. It is great for whipping up a quick, tasty and healthy breakfast. I share one of my favourites here...

Ingredients:

Mung beans - 1 cup
Rice (any variety) - 1/2 cup
Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp

Ginger - 1 tbsp
Onion - 1/4 cup chopped
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 5  (or to your taste)
Salt
Water

Coconut oil or butter

Soak overnight 1 cup of Mung beans (green or yellow or both) see the picture below..., 1/2 cup brown rice or any rice, 1 tsp fenugreek seeds.  In the morning when you are ready to make crepes. Blend together the soaked items, 1 tbsp ginger, 5 green chilles, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1/2 small onion (1/4 cup) to a smooth batter.
Add some water as required.  Heat a cast iron pan or any non-stick pan and pour 1/4 cup batter onto the pan and spread into a thin crepe.  This is really much easier than you think.  Once the crepe is fully cooked (this should take a minute or two) transfer onto a serving plate and spread some butter or coconut oil whichever you prefer.  Serve with your favourite chutney or sauce.  This goes very well with coconut chutney. I have posted the recipe for coconut chutney earlier.  Also at the end of this blog post you may watch the video of the crepe being made...
