Sprouted Moong salad

I have decided to include sprouts in our menu. Sprouts have a lot of health benefits. Sprouts are incredibly nutritious; especially for those on a raw food diet. Studies show remarkable levels of B Vitamins, as well as Vitamins C, E and A (up to 15 times the original content!). Sprouts can be eaten at any meal to help the digestive process along and keep raw living nutrition pumping through your blood.

I started with a simple salad and here's the recipe

Sprouted green gram - 100 grams
Carrots - 25 grams
Onions - 15 grams
Tomatoes - 15 grams
salt - to taste
Garlic - 2 pods
Lemon juice - 2 tbsp


  • Soak the green gram in water for 24 hours. After 24 hours you should start seeing sprouts popping up. Now drain the water and keep the green gram in a container with lid for another 24 hours. The green gram should have little moisture. Once the sprouts are ready store in refrigerator and use as per your needs.
  • Chop the onions, garlic and tomatoes into smaller pieces.
  • Grate the carrots.
  • Mix the sprouted green gram, chopped onions, garlic, tomatoes and carrots with salt and lemon juice. 

A Healthy Salad is ready!!!

You can also add chopped green chillies or pepper powder to get a spicy effect.
