Recipe by Chandra Hemchand of

I like diet foods very low in calories and at the same time nutritious. Children love this recipe

Ingredients vegetarian 4 servings

    1 cup chickpeas (kabuli chana) 1 cup black Chana 1 cup Green Moong 1 medium sized Tomato 1 medium sized Onion 8-10 leaves mint/parsely salt and pepper to taste black salt to taste 6-8 drops lemon, 1/2 tsp. vegetable/olive oil


    1. Soak chickpeas, black chana and moong in individual vessel in the morning in luke warm water. Drain them by evening
    2. Next morning by lunch time little sprouts start to come out. Take a vessel big enough for all three to fit in. Fill half the vessle with plain water and bring to a boil.
    3. First add chickpea and black chana. Let the water come to boil again before adding moong.
    4. Let them boil till tender (some like it very soft, some like such that they can bite it)
    5. Drain all together place them in a bowl and add to it chopped onion and tomatoes
    6. Sprinkle it with salt, black pepper and black salt. Garnish it with mint or parsely leaves.
    You can do the soaking procedure every night. So that you can eat this salad every day and feed your family with loads of nutrition. Even childeren will love it.



    Recipe sounds great! However, if you boil and drain the sprouts you lose almost all of the nutrients down the drain! How about you steam the sprouts instead....this will retain the nutrients and at the same time get cooked to your likelines (soft or with a bite to it).

    Why do we want vegetable oil and lemon drops. They have not been used in the recipe?


    what if we boil every thing together
