Cliantro Leaves - 1 tbsp Chopped fine
Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

Oil - 1 tsp
Hing - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - a few chopped fine

1. Soak moong dal for 1 hour ,drain and keep aside.
2. Mix dal,carrot,chili, lemon juice,salt and coriander leaves .
3. Heat oil add hing,mustard seeds ,curry leaves and pour over carrot mixture.

Tempering is totally optional tastes good just as it is without it . Sprinkle over curd rice to make it more nutritious and beautiful. Spread green chutney over two slice of bread and fill this salad and make a yummy sandwich.


  1. Lovely.. the salad is quite colorful. I think you have made a smart decision of having salad couple of time a week. I need to follow suit if I am hoping to lose any weight..

  2. Healthy looking salad. I must make a new year resolution to eat more salads!
