This version of a sprouted
salad can be prepared with lightly cooked sprouts , adding tomatoes, onions and
a tempering of mustard seeds if you wish. I also added some fenugreek seeds
sprouted so this is one power packed salad . Use lemon salt and mango powder
to enhance the taste to a tangy sourness.
1 cup of sprouted green gram ( moong )
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup finely chopped cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup sprouted fenugreek seeds
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tbsp finely chopped green chillis
Pinch of asafoetida powder
Pinch of lemon or garlic salt
1 tbsp lime juice.
1 tsp mango powder ( optional )
1/4 cup grated raw mango if available and in season , or else skip it.
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
In a pan, heat the oil, add the mustard seeds, let it pop, add the chopped green chillis, add some curry leaves if available, pour the seasoning over the salad vegetables, mix well and add all the ingredients except salts, and lime juice to prevent watery salad. Keep it in the fridge and add them at the time of serving.
If you are wary of eating raw sprouts, steam them in a vegetable steamer and use immediately.
