Moong Salad

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,
Here is my favorite food. I am ready to eat this any time, any day! I can stay with this for more than week, just changing few ingredients and small portion of chapati. 

The grains used here can be either partially cooked or even raw. Raw will taste better. But if you are not used for raw food, it is good to cook it in a microwave for one minute and use it.

The recipe is here,
Green moong - 1 cup 
Yellow moong(Whle moth bean, madaki kalu in Kannada) - 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds(Methi seeds) - 2 tbsp
Cucumber - 1 small (chopped into very small pieces)
Carrot - 1 small (grated)
Fresh coconut(grated) - 1/4 cup or less
Salt to taste
Green chilly - 1 chopped(skip this if you are giving it to kids)
Lime juice - 1 tbsp

Soak both the moong and fenugreek seeds  in water overnight. Remove the water. Keep them tied in the muslin cloth for a day to sprout the moongs(or if you know any other way to sprout it , follow it!)
Wash the beans(moong) with fresh water.
Keep it in microwave for 2 to 3 minutes or till the beans are 3/4th cooked. (Skip this step if you want to have it raw!!)
Take it out in a bowl. Add all other ingredients. Mix it properly. Adjust the seasoning.
Salad is ready to serve.

Keep smiling,
