Steps for making Raw Sprouted Crackers
Take raw papaya, wash it nicely, and peel off its outer skin. Then chop it up and put the pieces in a big bowl.
Chop up an onion and add it to the bowl along with half of a Pippali.
Add the chopped vegetables into a mixer grinder and blend it well. Once it turns into a thick pulp, empty the contents of your mixer into another bowl.
Now take the sprouted moong beans and put them in your mixer grinder. Add flaxseed powder and half a cup of water to it.
Blend it for a few seconds until it turns into a thick paste. Add this paste to the same bowl, which contains the vegetable pulp.
Repeat the process with the other sprouts. Don’t worry if your sprout-paste has chunky bits- it will give your crackers a better texture. You can also add Karpuravalli Leaves before blending to add some flavor to the mixture.
As soon as you complete blending the vegetables and the sprouts, mix them well in a bowl.
Take a big scoop of this mixture and spread it out evenly on a tray lined with non-stick sheets. Repeat the process 6-7 times.
You can decorate it with leaves, herbs, seeds, or sprouts before dehydrating the trays. You would need a dehydrator for this recipe. Also, make sure that the temperature of the dehydrator is low.
Once they are dry to touch, take the trays out, flip it, and remove the non-stick sheets.
Cut the dry mixture into pieces and dehydrate it again until it is completely dry and crispy.
After that, you can break it into pieces and serve the crackers with green papaya scapes or healthy vegan salad cream.
