When I picked the Salads theme for this week’s Blogging Marathon, my idea was to finally start my ‘healthy eating’, three months into the new year. I read up a lot on salads and various dressings but fell back to my default regular recipes which I make for myself. These are my go-to recipes for the times I have to cook only for me, which is a boring affair. So I toss in whatever is available in the fridge / pantry and call it a bowl of salad.
This salad is a fallout of my bhel puri craving. Like I said earlier, it is hard to find bhel puri ingredients in my part of the world and improvisations are the order of the day when such cravings strike. I have a small jar of the date tamarind chutney in my fridge, which is my favorite part of the bhel puri and I toss in all available veggies and mix it with the chutney and it comes pretty close to the real thing. So here goes –
WHAT WE NEED
Moong (or any other lentil) sprouts 1/2 cup
Tomato, medium size 1
Spring onion stalks 8-1o
Capsicum, small 1
Date tamarind chutney 1 tbsp
Chat masala A dash
Chilly powder (optional) A sprinkle
WHAT TO DO
- Boil the sprouts in little hot water till it is cooked but retains a bite
- Cut the tomatoes, capsicum and spring onions into small pieces
- Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl
