Hope you all had a great weekend. I would like to introduce you to my little neighbours :). There are 2 cute little birds who have made a beautiful nest over the lamp shade just outside our apartment. Though they are making a mess in front of our door, we are just amazed by the architecture of the beautiful nest. It's really unbelievable !! Whenever we open the front door, they will fly away and they will come back later. So it was very difficult to get a snap with both the birds and the nest. Luckily we got one bird in the nest when it was raining and very cold outside, so it couldn't fly away !! God is really great and his creations too :)

Today's recipe is Sprouted moong salad. The sprouted moong look very beautiful, they are very healthy and tasty. I have used a combination of sprouted moong, red cabbage and corn. Its a simple salad. Hope you will try this healthy salad..!!
How to sprout moong?
- Soak the whole moong in water for a minimum of 8 to 10 hours.
- Drain the water, wash the moong. Tie them in a clean cloth.
- I usually keep it in a vessel, close it with a lid.(dark warm place is needed)
- Sprinkle water in between to make the cloth damp.
- Sprouts should appear within a day or two.
- If you want to get longer sprouts, leave it for few more hours.
- Refrigerate them and use as needed.
|Aren't they pretty ?|
1.5 cup Sprouted moong
3/4 cup Red cabbage, chopped
1/2 cup Corn
1" pc Ginger
Take the sprouted moong in a microwaveable vessel. Sprinkle some water and cook for 2-3 minutes in microwave. Cook corn and red cabbage for a minute in microwave. Mix the moong, corn and red cabbage. Squeeze half a lime into this. For Ginger juice, grate the ginger and squeeze them. (I use garlic press too ). Mix the ginger juice into the salad. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Add coriander leaves and mix everything well.
The healthy salad is ready to serve.
