Sprouts Salad-Chaat Style

Print Friendly and PDF
You might be seeing a lot of salad recipes in my blog these days,the reason is simple that I just want to add more recipes to the event hosting by me this month.This is also a opportunity for me to eat these healthy salads regularly.I had a cup of sprouts left over after making the delicious Misal pav last week and a small pack of bean sprouts that are left over which I got to make Gado Gado salad and they were also getting spoil as I could not make it on time.So I thought of adding those to the regular sprouts and make a salad which I had for my morning breakfast.As I have already posted one version of Moong Sprouts Salad in my blog I thought of making another version of it,chaat style which I love to eat with bombay puri which replaces the spoons wonderfully and are edible too.I used chorafari poori instead of Bombay puri as I had only them at that moment.There is no strict recipe for this as I do this every time according to the availability of ingredients in my pantry.I love to add either grapes or pomegranate kernels to sprouts as they pair up very nicely.

Ingredients:
1 cup mixed sprouts(I used moong,matki and bean sprouts)
1 onion,finely chopped
1 carrot,finely chopped
1 small cucumber,finely chopped
1 tomato,finely chopped
3 tbsp chopped coriander
8-10 green grapes,chopped
1 tbsp Imli chutney
1 tsp Green chutney(optional)
1/2 tsp chat masala
1/2 tsp red chili powder
juice of half lemon
fine sev to garnish
salt to taste
Bombay puri or Chorafari puri as a edible spoon to serve with

Method:
  • Take sprouts,chopped vegetables in a big bowl.Add coriander to it and mix well.
  • Now add Imli chutney,green chutney,salt,red chili powder,chat masala and lemon juice and mix well.Adjust the seasonings according to your taste.
  • Serve it into individuals plates/bowls and garnish with coriander and fine sev.
Serve it immediately otherwise it leaves water after sometimes and make the sev soggy.

Variations:
  1. You can add chopped raw mango to it.
  2. You can even add two cups of puffed rice to convert it to a sprouts bhel.Adjust the seasonings accordingly.
This salad is going to participate in the 'Only' Salads event hosted by me,which is started by Pari of Foodelicious.
