Moong Sprouts Salad

Print Friendly and PDF
Sprouts are very healthy as it contains more nutrients when compared to other foods and is very essential to include them in our daily diet.Many people do not like sprouts because of the raw smell, but when they are mixed with lots of vegetables and fruits and is mixed well with a sweet and spicy dressing the salad will be very tastier and one can hardly make out the rawness of those sprouts.This is one of the regular variety of sprouts salad which I make at home for breakfast.This sprouts salad goes to the event 'Let's Sprout' hosted by priya and also to siri's "My Legumes Love affair(MLLA) # 25" started by Susan.

Ingredients:
1 cup fresh moong sprouts( I used 1/2 cup moong and 1/2 cup matki/moth sprouts)
1/4 cup finely chopped cucumber

1/4 cup sweet pomegranate kernels

1/4 cup finely chopped/grated carrot

1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes

2 tbsp finely chopped onions

2 tbsp finely chopped raw mango pieces

1 tbsp chopped walnuts

1 tbsp chopped dried apricots or dates or raisins

1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander


for the dressing:
3-4 finely chopped/minced green chillies
1/2 tsp grated ginger(optional)
1/4 tsp chat masala
generous drizzle of lemon juice

few drops of honey(optional)

salt to taste


Method:
  • Take a wide deep bowl and add the sprouts,carrot,raw mango,tomato,onion,cucumber pieces and mix well.
  • Add chopped walnuts,apricots,coriander and mix well.
  • For the dressing take a small bowl and squeeze in the juice of one lemon and add salt,3-4 drops of honey,chat masala and mix well.Add grated ginger and minced green chillies and mix well.
  • Add the dressing to the sprouts mix and mix well.
Serve it fresh or keep it in refrigerator for 15 mins and serve cold.

Verdict: Clean bowled a bowl of salad within few mins.

Variations:
  • You can avoid onions,honey,ginger in the above salad and add grated coconut instead and also add a tadka of mustard and hing to the salad.
  • You can even add raw soaked groundnuts,chopped fresh grapes,sliced oranges/mosambi for different flavors.
