Chat Salad

   

When I picked the Salads theme for this week’s Blogging Marathon, my idea was to finally start my ‘healthy eating’, three months into the new year. I read up a lot on salads and various dressings but fell back to my default regular recipes which I make for myself. These are my go-to recipes for the times I have to cook only for me, which is a boring affair. So I toss in whatever is available in the fridge / pantry and call it a bowl of salad.

This salad is a fallout of my bhel puri craving. Like I said earlier, it is hard to find bhel puri ingredients in my part of the world and improvisations are the order of the day when such cravings strike. I have a small jar of the date tamarind chutney in my fridge, which is my favorite part of the bhel puri and I toss in all available veggies and mix it with the chutney and it comes pretty close to the real thing. So here goes –

Serves 1

WHAT WE NEED

Moong (or any other lentil) sprouts          1/2 cup

Tomato, medium size                                     1

Spring onion stalks                                         8-1o

Capsicum, small                                               1

Date tamarind chutney                                  1 tbsp

Chat masala                                                       A dash

Chilly powder (optional)                               A sprinkle

Salt
WHAT TO DO

  • Boil the sprouts in little hot water till it is cooked but retains a bite
  • Cut the tomatoes, capsicum and spring onions into small pieces
  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl
  • Enjoy!
