Mixed Millet Salad With Green Chutney Dressing is a healthy and spicy salad with Indian flavours. It’s a simple salad that gets ready in a jiffy provided you have coriander-mint chutney with you.

This salad is made with boiled millet. You can boil the millet and keep it in your refrigerator as they keep good for 3 to 4 days easily.

Though all millets are superfoods but each of these has its own positives as well. Like Ragi is rich in calcium and iron, Barnyard millet is fibre rich, Proso and Foxtail are protein-rich and so on. So, I just thought of mixing all these millets in my salad. And this time for dressing also, instead of using olive oil or vinegar, I kept it simple by adding some basic veggies like tomato and cucumber into the boiled millets and then tossing everything in green chutney. And the result was awesome. It was a hit and everybody said that I should make it often.

Green Chutney As A Dressing

When it comes to salad, I prefer light dressings as compared to creamy dressings. I have shared so many salads by now and none of them has a creamy dressing. Be it soup or salad, we prefer a light one only.

So, when I was making this salad, suddenly it reminded me of a salad I had at my mom’s place a few months back. It was a different salad, but my sister-in-law, Tripti, had used green chutney as the dressing. I had liked it a lot and really wanted to use it sometime. So, when I made this millet salad,  I tried the same dressing and the result was excellent. After all, green chutney has all the spices in it and is tangy as well. Also, its there in the refrigerator most of the time so why not use it as it is?

    Instructions
     

    For The Salad

    • Take 1/2 cup millets of your choice. I took 2 tbsp each of Ragi, Barnyard, Little, Kodo and Foxtail.
    • Wash these thoroughly by changing water several times as there is lot of dirt in it.
    • Once the water gets clean, soak it for 8 hours.
    • After about 8 hours, drain the water and boil millets.
    • For this, put the soaked millets in the pressure cooker along with 1 cup water and cook for 2 whistles. Switch off the flame and let the pressure settle down fully.
    • Open the pressure cooker and fluff the boiled millets. This will be now almost 2 cups.
    • You can keep it in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days easily.
    • For making the salad, let the boiled millets cool down completely first.
    • Once cooled, add chopped tomato, cucumber, peppers etc and green chutney to it.
    • Toss everything. Add some pomegranate pearls as this really enhances the taste as well as the looks of the salad.
    • Adjust seasoning if need be.
    • At the time of serving, add roasted and crushed peanuts.
    • Serve with love, lemon coriander soup optional.

    For Green Chutney Dressing

    • Clean and wash green coriander and mint.
    • Roughly chop these.
    • Put chopped coriander, mint and all the spices mentioned under Green chutney in the grinder. Add 2 tbsp water and 2 ice cubes and gring to a fine paste.

    Notes

    1. 1/2 cup millets become 1 cup after soaking and finally becomes 2 cups after boiling.
    2. Take millets of your choice.
    3. You can make green chutney as per your recipe too.
    4. In the absence of green chutney, add chat masala, salt, pepper and lemon juice.
    5. Ice cubes are added as it helps in retaining the bright green colour of the green chutney.
