This salad made from moong sprouts is specially good for people who does not have much time for cooking or who does not know much about cooking specially college goers who are studying in a hostel or staying away from family for job or studies. An excellent recipe for the summers.

Although you can get ready-made sprouted moong beans from the market. But it is always better and healthy to sprout moong beans at home. i have already written a detailed post on How to sprout moong beans at home.

Once the moong beans have been sprouted then we have a quick salad recipe in hand and we can easily flavor it as per your taste. You can be really innovative in making this salad spicy, crunchy, tangy or sweet. much is possible with sprouted moong beans. They are often added in some Indian recipes like pani puri or bhel puri or usal or dahi papdi chaat.

In this sprouts salad recipe, we need to steam or boil the sprouts Till they are completely cooked. The water which we use to boil sprouts is generally discarded. But that water is very healthy and can be used for cooking or can be given to your plants or herbs which you are growing in your kitchen garden. If you want the moong sprouts to be crunchy then you can even keep it half cooked.

Variations you can make in sprouts salad

  1. I usually add finely chopped onion, tomato, green chilli and sprinkle black salt and few drops of lemon on it. This is how I often make this salad for breakfast. Oh yes, this is the only salad which we have for breakfast.
  2. You can also add boiled potatoes in addition to onions and tomatoes. You can also substitute boiled potatoes with boiled sweet potatoes.
  3. If you want a sweet salad then add fruits and dry fruits of your choice. citrus fruits like orange and sweet lime will go very well with moong sprouts. Other fruits you can add are pomegranate or mangoes.

    1. sunayna, you can carry the sprouts salad in the tiffin. just avoid adding onions and they release a lot of water and their aroma also changes after some hours. or you can less onions.
