MOONG SPROUT SALAD


A very healthy bowl of salad specially in summers when you want to eat light food.

Ingredients:
Moong dal sprouts - 1 cup
Potato ...... 1 (boiled and cubed)
Beetroot .... 1 small (boiled and cubed)
Red cabbage .. 1/2 cup ( shredded)
Tomato ..... 1 small ( cut into pieces)
Mint leaves ... few
Chat masala ... 1/2 tsp ( you can use roasted & crushed cumin seeds instead)
Black pepper ... freshly crushed as per your taste
Salt ... to taste
Honey ... 1 tbsp ( optional)
Lemon juice ... 1 tbsp



How to make the moong sprouts at home:
1.Soak the moong beans for few hours.
2.Wrap them in a wet muslin cloth and hang it or just place it on a plate and leave it in airy place or window sill.
3.Keep sprinkling water a few times in a day.
4.In 2-3 days you will see the sprouts growing.
5.If you want longer shoots repeat the process for a couple of days more.

To make salad:
1. I have blanched the sprouts and cabbage for one boil in salted water. You may use them raw if you prefer.
2. Mix the ingredients together when the sprouts and cabbage are cooled.
3. Crush the mint leaves to get the nice flavour and chip them finely.
5. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
Serve at room temperature  or chilled.
