Sprouted Ground Nut Salad

Including sprouted cereals in your meal provides all the essential vitamins and minerals that you need for leading a healthy life.

All edible grains, seeds and legumes can be sprouted except for some grains and seeds may take longer time to sprout.

While sprouting, the contents of vitamins, minerals and protein in the seed increase substantially while the caloric value and carbohydrate content decrease.

Here I have used organic ground nut and allowed them to sprout. This salad can be taken with tea as an evening snack.

Ingredients:

  • One cup of sprouted ground nut
  • One onion
  • 1/2 capsicum
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • One piece of raw mango
  • One tomato
  • One small carrot
  • One small cup of pomegranate pearls
  • One tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • One tsp lemon juice
  • Salt  as required

For Garnishing

  • Few coriander leaves

Method

  1. Cook sprouted ground nut with enough salt and water till it becomes soft.
  2. Allow it to cool and strain the excess water and keep it aside.
  3. Cut onion, capsicum, cucumber, raw mango, carrot and tomato into thin strips.
  4. In a  large bowl, mix cooked ground nut, all the vegetables, pomegranate pearls, chilli powder, pepper powder, lemon juice and salt.
  5. Mix well and garnish with coriander leaves.
  6. Serve with tea or coffee as an evening snack.

    HI MAMI! THE MOUTH-WATERING RECIPIE OF “GROUNDNUT SALAD” was just amazing!

    Madam

    The preparation is interesting and reading itself is moth watering. But can a heart patient with forming plaques consume Groundnut Salad? Will soaking and boiling change the chemistry of Groundnuts, to the extent that the salad becomes OK for heart patients with existing plagues?

    Hi

    I am giving links to two sites in which you may find answer to your question. I did not come across any report/article restricting in take of ground nuts by heart patients. I may suggest that you consult your doctor/dietician to know the suitability of this recipe.

    I am inspired by your appreciation. Thanks

  6. A great idea for future recipes this. Thank you for sharing it. Have you noticed how so many people appear to be cooking again? I wonder if the lack of funds due to the current climate has something to do with it and we all appear to be cooking again! its great!
