Methi Sprouts Salad

Ingredients to make Methi Sprouts Salad

  • methi seeds: 2 tablespoons heaped
  • cucumber: one medium sized
  • lemon zest: 1/2 tsp ( optional)
  • lemon/lime juice: from one lemon/lime
  • green chillies: 1 medium-sized chopped

  • Freshly grated coconut: 1/2 tbsp
  • salt to taste
  • coconut oil: 1 tsp

How to make Methi Sprouts Salad

  1. First sprout the methi seeds: Soak the methi seeds in water for 4-5 hours. Drain the water completely. Cover the container with a wet cloth or paper towel.
  2. Let it sit for atleast a day. You will see it sprout the next day. I kept it for 2 days as I wanted longer sprouts.
  3. To make the salad: Wash the cucumber and chop it finely. Take it in a bowl. Add the methi sprouts to the bowl.
  4. Add lemon zest, lemon /lime juice, salt, chopped cilantro and mix well. Garnish with freshly grated coconut.
  5. For tempering ( optional):Heat coconut oil in a frying pan. Add mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds splutter, turn off the flame. Add hing and curry leaves.
  6. Add this to the salad and mix well.
  7. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

My Tip:

Other ingredients like grated carrots, corn, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate seeds can be added to this dish as per individual taste.
