How to make South Indian Style Green Moong Sprouts, Raw Mango Salad Recipe
To begin making the South Indian Style Green Moong Sprouts, Raw Mango Salad Recipe, we need to keep the sprouts ready.
For this we can either use store bought green moong sprouts, or follow the link How to make Sprouts at Home.
In a mixing bowl, combine chopped mangoes, grated carrots, green moong sprouts, green chilies and finely chopped coriander leaves. Add salt to taste, lemon juice and grated coconut (optional). Stir well to combine.
The next step is to prepare the tempering. In a small saucepan, heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and allow the mustard seeds to sputter. Once done add in the asafoetida and immediately remove from heat.
Add this tempering to the mixed Green Moong Sprouts with Raw Mango and toss well. Serve crunchy, spicy, healthy mango, sprouts and corn salad at room temperature or as I love it, slightly chilled.
