Hey guys, this colourful, refreshing, protein packed, low calorie nutritious sprouted green gram and fresh veggies salad is perfect for a light lunch. Enjoy and please don't forget to like, share and SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such healthy and delicious recipes.

I have used moong sprouted at home along with fresh veggies like tomato, carrot, cucumber, orange, onion, etc. with a dressing of lime juice, deseeded green chillies, roasted cumin seed powder, pepper powder, olive oil, salt and garnished with fresh coriander leaves.

You can be innovative and add some boiled chicken and make it more nutritious, spicy, crunchy or tangy as per your taste.
