Mixed Legume Salad

Photobucket

Salads = Healthy food! The first thought that pops up in the mind when we speak of healthy diet is salads. Yes! Salads are really healthy and that too when legumes are included they are double healthy.

This salad is my favorite since my most favorite ingredient, the curd is the binding part of it :)

The crispy potato chips topping is the high light of the salad. It makes the dish so delicious and crunchy. Kids wouldn't feel salads are boring when such a nice topping is done ;) Got the trick!! :)

Method:

Soak the legumes over night in water. Steam cook both the legumes.

Chop onions and tomato into small squares.

Take the legumes in mixing bowl and add hung curd and all the spices. Mix well and sprinkle cut coriander leaves.

Serve them in serving plates and sprinkle crushed potato chips and serve immediately.

Enjoy the crunchy and healthy salad :)

Hung curd:

Take a large bowl and spread a muslin cloth over it. Spoon in two cups of curd on the cloth. Tie it tight and hang it over the sink for the water to drain. The curd would become thick and rich.
