Chaat… mmm…. the epitome of road side food back home…. nothing compares to its taste, its smell, its mouth watering effect, its make you sniffle effect …. and….of course its unhealthiness. 😀 Needless to mention, it was something I ate almost daily for several years of my life and miss it a lot. Yeah, we can make chaat at home and find it in restaurants here, but nothing gets close to standing on the road, wiping sweat and relishing the chaat-wala’s creaction.
Well, here’s a rather tasty and healthy version made with sprouted moong. Many of us dislike sprouted stuff, but I promise you, try this one out and you’ll be loving it for ever.
Sprouted Moong Chaat/ Salad
Ingredients to Serve 4
To sprout the moong: Wash and clean the moong. Soak them in water overnight or for atleast 6 hours. Drain all the water and wrap them in a clean cotton kitchen towel. Gather all the corners of the towel and make a bundle. Put this in a tupperware with a lid, such that the moong is well bundled inside the towel. Put the lid on loosely and leave this for another 8-10 hours. Depending on how hot it is in your home, this could take anywhere from 6-12 hours to sprout.
When the moong have sprouted, put them in your salad mixing bowl.
Add all the other ingredients and toss until well combined.
That’s it! Enjoy on a hot summer day. 🙂
