Soya beans Salad

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Soya beans!!! Healthiest beans for every one. Many people do not like to have it in beans form But there are many ways to get it into your stomach. You can make it flour and add it into wheat flour. You can have soya chunks or soya granules.
Soybeans belong to the legume family and are native to East Asia. Whole soybeans are an excellent source of protein and dietary fibre. Soy protein is the only vegetable with a complete protein... Read more 


I love it (Again me!!!!   ) in any form, as usual. But, this salad is really quick and healthy and tasty!!! My sister in law (Kavita) who stays in Sharjah, loves this salad from me!! When ever I ask her what she wants me to make for her, her first choice is always this salad. So this is for her!!


Soya beans - 1 cup, soaked for 8 hours and boiled till soft
Carrot - 1 big, cleaned and chopped into fine cubes
Capsicum - 1 medium, cleaned and cubed
Onion - 1 medium, cleaned and cubed
Mayonnaise - 2 to 3 tbsp(if you do not like Mayonnaise, add hung curd! it taste great!)
Pepper powder - 1 tsp (avoid this, if you are giving it to kids)
Salt to taste. 
Fresh coriander - 1 tbsp chopped (or even Parsley will taste good, if you like the flavor)
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Add 1 tbsp of chopped green chilly for spicy taste.
Put  everything in a big bowl and mix it properly. Keep it in a fridge for some time before you serve. 
Munch it in the morning, or in the after noon or in the evening. Or have a bowl of this salad as a dinner!!! 
It gives justice to any time!!!

Girmitt (Puffed rice with onion masala)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
One of regular food in North Karnataka. It is a street food available at any time in small tea stalls. (another taste of Girmitt.)
Easy to make and it does not need any cooking. Great filler if you are very hungry and no patience to cook. Only to take care is do not drink water immediately after you eat it.(thats what our granny's tell, do not know the proper reason!! but they say if you drink water you will have upset stomach. 
I have posted the recipe with cooking in my previous entries. Lets try this one without cooking.


All you need is,
Puffed rice - 1big bowl 
for masala 
Onion - 1 big,  chopped into small cubes
Red Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Fresh coriander - handful, cleaned and chopped
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - 6 to 8, cleaned and chopped
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp 
Dalia powder - 1 tbsp(optional)
Sugar - 1 tsp
Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl. Then add the puffed rice and mix well just before you eat otherwise it will become soft and you will not enjoy the taste.

Moong Salad (Reposted)

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 to 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(Whole 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.

Sweet Tomato

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi all,

No cooking food and most of the kids will love it. My granny used to give us as starter. But you should have large grain sugar, what we get in India,then it tastes better and crunchy.
Tomato – 1 or 2, big
Sugar – to sprinkle
Cut Tomato in to thin circles.
Arrange on the plate.
Just before serving, sprinkle sugar on tomato slices. It tastes better if tomatoes are kept in the fridge before adding sugar.
