Wheat-Jowar Salad

Print Friendly and PDF

This is the most healthy way of eating the grains like wheat, jowar n Bajra. Last time when my parents visited us, she has brought all these grains, Brown rice and Red rice .I did not understand why she has brought all these grains, but later when she prepared the sprouts out of it and made this salad I was surprised with the outcome taste of the salad and it tastes better than the regular moong sprouts.Even my husband who does not like sprouts also liked the taste of this salad. From then I started preparing this very healthy salad frequently.
I am sending this to JFI-Wheat hosted by Roma of Roma's Space.

Ingredients:

1 cup Wheat grains
1 cup Jowar grains
1 cup Bajra grains
1 Big Red onion finely chopped
2 Big ripen Tomatoes finely chopped
4 tbsp Bell peppers(red/yellow) diced small and blanched
2 tbsp finely chopped Corriander
Salt

For the Dressing:

1 lemon squeezed
2 tsp Olive oil
½ tsp green chilli paste
1 garlic clove grated
½ tsp sugar
salt

Method:

Soak the grains for 6 – 8 hrs,drain the water,cover and keep over night until the sprouts are formed(or prepare it in the sprouts maker).Pressure cook it with enough water and salt for 3 whistles and simmer it for 20 mins.As these grains are hard,it will be cooked well if it is cooked for long.Remove and drain water.It is good to eat like this as well.

Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients required for it.

Mix the cooked sprouts with the chopped bell peppers,onions,tomatoes,coriander and dressing and serve it immediately.
