Sprouted green gram salad

Posted on Updated on

Salads are a part of the lunch/Dinner in the modern days. I always prepare either veg salad or the sprouted gram salad or the mixed veg salad for lunch in the noon. What I am putting up here is a different kind of salad – not what you use in Palau or biryani. This has a combination of pulses, fruits and dry fruits.

Hope you like it !

What you need to have:

1. Sprouted Greengram 1 cup

2. Chopped cucumber 1/4 cup

3. Baby corn 1-2

4. Pomegranate seeds 1/2 cup

5. Cashews a few

6. Kishmish a few

7. Grated coconut 1 Tablespoon

8. Coriander leaves 1 Teaspoon

9. Lemon juice 1 teaspoon

10. Green chilli 1
11. Salt – as per taste

Ingredients of Sprouted Green gram salad


1. Mustard seeds – 1 Teaspoon

2. Asafoetida powder – 1/2 Teaspoon

3. Red chilli – 1

4. Curry leaf strings – 2

Ingredients of Seasoning

What you do with what you have:

1. Wash and drain sprouted grrengram and keep aside.

2. Cut green chilly, grate coconut, chop coriander leaves fine. Also wash and slice cucumber and keep them all aside separately in a plate. Mix chopped green chilly and salt together and keep aside.

3. Peal babycorn and chop it fine. Peal pomegranate, cut cashews into fine to match the other ingredients.

4. Mix what you have from Step 1 to Step 3 in a bowl and squeeze 1 tea spoon lemon juice to it .


5. Place a spatula with 2 teaspoon cooking oil in it. On heating add mustard seeds to it. On sputtering add Asafoetida powder, red chili and curry leaves.

Add to the salad from Step 4 and you are ready to serve.

Ready to serve sprouted Green gram salad

How long it takes: 30 minutes

What to remember:

1. One can even use pealed green gram if one may so prefer. I have used skinned since it is good from health point of view.

2. Always mix cucumber, salt and green chilly at the end just before it is seasoned and served. The reason being that it releases a lot of water and makes the salad soggy and tasteless.

3. The quantity of cashews, pomegranate, kishmish depends upon personal preferences.

    Hi prathiba!

    sprouted green gram salad was really yummy. Since my family is in the process of developing the habit of eating natural raw food on 70% basis daily, this salad was an added recipe in my cook book. thanks a lot.
    I also went thro your sankashti pooja vidhaan. I would like to know whether you know more about Gowri pooja (Vayana Pooja) the reason for keeping the coconuts decorated for that pooja and later on using it for consumption.
