I am not a salad fan, i know that not good for me, but i just can’t eat vegetables raw except cucumber. Since childhood i had been getting scoldings for this bad habit of mine of not eating salads. I still remember , it was my teenage when i was first encountered with the most simple and delicious looking salad which that time i thought is a cooked vegetable…yes i know i was a dumb! Well that was just a simple moong bean sprout salad which my mom served me saying its a sabzi (clever mom). Those swollen moon been with sprouts coming out like strings was served to me with lots of chaat masala and lemon so that before i get to identify the taste it’s down in my tummy (like i said..clever mom) . Years passed by and i grew up thinking that i was having a sabzi daily that tasted amazing till i reached my college and some fellow told me that it’s a salad (heart break). But no worries because till that time, my palate has accepted it well.
So now following the legacy, i started to play the same trick on my son as well. He is again not a salad eater, so the best way i could feed him is making a simple yet super tasty and nutritious Moon Bean Sprout Salad and to make it even more interesting, i serve this to him in small cute little cucumber cups (boats will be too big for him to finish). Ideal for kids tiffin or can even be served in your brunch parties. Quick and can be made in a jiffy, the only time consuming process is to get the bean sprouted. So i would suggest to get that done in bulk, zip lock it and freeze. So that next time when ever you want to make this salad or anything out of the sprouts, just take them out of the freezer, soak in water for some time and your sprouts are ready to be used.
