Sprouted Moong Salad ( For the Potluck Cyberstyle )

Legumes and pulses are one of the most important sources of proteins and I feel Moong is one of the most versatile among all.

You can make so many varieties like dosas, usali, curry, sweets and many many more. At least twice in a month I make it a point to sprout whole moong and keep it stored in the fridge after sprouting. These sprouts make it easier for me to use moong in our diet . 

Today is 10th of the month and we a group of blogger friends have a virtual potluck-party-cyber-style  on this day. So I am posting this recipe for all my friends from this group. If you want to enjoy the dishes along with us  please do join us in this event. Get more information from  here 

In this salad I have used spring onions and boiled potatoes along with the sprouts. You can also use any other combination of veggies available at home. 

You can make a light night meal out of it by adding more vegetables of your choice or 1 or 2 fruits like apples and pineapples .




Ingredients :

2 cups ....................Sprouted moong
1 small bunch...........Spring onions
2 ............................potatoes boiled 
1/2 tsp....................pepper powder
1...........................green chilly ( finely chopped)
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp.......................sugar
salt
pomegranate seeds for garnishing ( optional)


Method :

Heat water in a utensil and add the sprouted moong .

Cook for 5 to 7 minutes till they are half cooked yet crisp.

Drain out the water and keep the moong aside.

You can also throw away the skin of moong which floats on the boiling water if you want.

Wash the spring onions and chop them finely.

Peel the boiled potatoes and cube them.

Add everything except salt and chill in the fridge.

While serving add salt mix well and serve with pulavs or biryanis .
