What's So Special?
This dessert acquires sweetness from the Jaggery powder. Jaggery pairs very well with the sprouts and give a perfect taste to the dish.
Sprouted Moong Bean:
The sprouted Moong beans are a power pack of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. This low-calorie food helps us to stay fit always.
The freshly shredded coconut is surely a taste lifter that shows off coconutty flavour in the dessert.
Very little ghee:
There is not any need for a generous amount of ghee. A very little ghee or little butter is enough to make a perfect fudge.
So, this very unique, very easy, hassle-free, and insanely delicious dessert would become everybody's favourite and definitely, would become kid's favourite when they give it a try. Nobody can possibly know that there are loads of sprouts present in the dessert since there won't be any traces of them.
To make the perfect fudge every time, we need to do certain "Dos" and should not do certain "Don'ts".
- Do not grind the sprouts and coconut into a coarse paste. What we need is the very smooth paste that in turn paves the way for the mouth-melting fudge.
- Do not skip adding chopped nuts. The crunchy nuts then and there in the smooth fudge can do wonders.
- Do not skip milk as they tend to give a yummy taste to the dessert. You can use any plant-based milk if you are lactose-intolerant. Having said that, this recipe works even without milk.
- Use a wide non-stick pan to get the recipe done within 10 minutes of time. The narrow pan lengthens the time taken to get a perfect consistency.
- Do not add more ghee since the fudgy feel would get missed. You can add butter instead of ghee.
- When the mixture comes together or when the sides start to leave the pan, it means that the right consistency is reached. When you pour the mixture from the spatula, it should fall as gathered.
- The dessert needs to be refrigerated for at least 3 hours to get set completely.
- Wax paper is not mandatory as the cut pieces will come off easily from the well-greased plate. Do not forget to grease the plate well with ghee before adding the fudge mixture in to it.
This dessert is a great way to add goodness to your loved one's diet. Since the fudge can be stored in the fridge for 7 to 10 days, we can enjoy them as a snack or after-meal dessert that never fails to add goodness to your health.
So, the very easy, very healthy, very fudgy, unique Sprouts Fudge made with loads of goodness is here for you. "Packthesnack" is no new to unique desserts, and here are some to explore.

How to Make?
Sprouting Mung Beans:
- Take Moong beans in a wide bowl. Wash them, and soak them in enough water overnight. It is preferable to soak the beans for 8 to 10 hours.
- Transfer the soaked mung beans to a cotton cloth after draining the water.

Making Sprouts Fudge:
- Measure a cup of sprouted mung beans and add it to a mixer jar.
- Measure half a cup of freshly shredded coconut, and add it into a mixer jar.
- Grind them at first to get a coarse mixture. Doing so helps to get the smooth mixture when we grind it again with milk.
- Add half a cup of milk, and grind to get a very fine paste. I use boiled cow's milk here.
- Now, add the remaining half a cup of milk, and grind to get a very smooth runny paste.
- You would get a smooth mixture like this.
- In a pan, add a tablespoon of ghee.
- Roast a few cashews, and almonds in the shimmering hot ghee.
