Sprouts Salad

 

Ever since I have adopted this recipe of sprouts they are a favorite of all of us.  What’s the difference? Well, wait for a while and you will come to know.

What Are Sprouts?

We all know that sprouts are good for our health. But what actually sprouts are? How are they good for us? Why can’t we have the whole grain just after soaking in water for a few hours? Why sprout them? Soaking makes the grain more digestible, no doubt but sprouting does much more than that.

Sprouts are germinated grains. They are low in calories and full of nutrients. That is why they are excellent for weight watchers. To know about all these refer to my post ‘how to make sprouts and why?

Making sprouts at home is a little lengthy process but worth it. It is always advised to have homemade sprouts then to buy them from the market. Once you have the sprouts ready then making sprouts salad is just a few minutes game.

A Little About This Recipe

Now coming back to our sprouts salad. This is a very simple salad in which I have added mung bean sprouts as well as Kala chana sprouts and veggies like cucumber, tomato, etc and finally seasoned with salt, chaat masala, and lemon juice.

Till a few years back I used to make sprouts salad with veggies only until one day I ate this salad at my sister-in-laws’ place. The same salad at her place tasted too good.

What was the difference? The difference in spices? No, in fact, she had put salt and lemon juice only. Then why did it taste so good that you could eat even a full bowl? Well, the difference was that she had put apples in it. The sweetness of apples blended well with the sprouts and veggies. She said that whenever possible she adds pomegranate also. The difference was miraculous.

Trust me, the addition of apples/pears and pomegranate take this salad to an altogether different level. Since then, I have never made this salad without apples. Even if I forget then my dear hubby would ask immediately, didn’t you add apples? Try this version you will love it.

Sprouts Salad Recipe

Ultimate source of protein for vegetarians and vegans.

Ingredients
  

My 1 Cup measures 240 ml

  • 1/2 Cup Sprouted Moong Beans Green Gram
  • 1/4 Cup Sprouted Kala Chana Black Beans
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Tomatoes
  • 1 Green Capsicum
  • 1/4 Cup Corn Kernels Boiled
  • 1 Apple
  • 1/2 Cup Pomegranate Pearls
  • 2 Tablespoon Green Coriander Chopped Finely
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • 1 Teaspoon or as per taste Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon or as per taste Chaat Masala

Instructions
 

  • Take Sprouted Moong beans and sprouted Kala Chana
  • Cook sprouted green gram and black gram either partially or fully.
  • For cooking in the microwave, take the required sprouts in a bowl, sprinkle water and put it in the microwave oven for 1 or 2 minutes depending upon how soft you would like.
  • For cooking on the gas stove, keep some water in a pan and put to boil. When the water starts boiling keep a steel colander on it and add the sprouts in the strainer. Cover the strainer with a plate. Sprouts will be cooked in the steam coming from the boiling water.
  • If you want to have fully cooked and very soft sprouts then best is to pressure cook them for a whistle. You may choose whichever method suits you the best.
  • Chop cucumber (with skin), tomatoes (better, if deseeded), capsicum and apple very finely. I used my chopper for this.
  • In a big bowl, take steamed mixed sprouts, add finely chopped onion tomato and other veggies and apple, pomegranate pearls, green coriander, salt, chaat masala and lemon juice.
  • Toss nicely. Serve with love.

Notes

  1. Take veggies and fruits as per your liking, preference and availability.
  2. Avoid pulpy fruits like mangoes, kiwi, melons etc.
  3. It's better to cook green gram and black gram sprouts separately as the latter takes slightly more time.
