Blogging Marathon# 58: Week 3/ Day 1

Theme: Salads

Dish: Moong dal Salad (Vadapappu Salad)

We are starting a new week of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘Salads’. Growing up, salads were never part of our meal and the first time I ate a salad was during my Masters orientation in the US. The less about the experience the better and most of my fellow Indian students shared the same feeling.

But through the years I grew older, wiser and my palate changed for the better. Salads used to be just part of the meal once but now I can eat a salad and call it a day. So I’m always looking for new salads to add to my repertoire.

First up is a very simple and easy to make salad. Soaked and drained moong dal is offered to god as prasad during festivals and other occasions. For this salad lettuce, pomegranate seeds, coconut and raisins are added to the moong dal to make a filling and delicious dish that can be a light meal all in itself. Recipe is from a Telugu Cooking show.

  1. Wow you made such a refreshing salad and that vadapappu in the title confused me since I was expecting the boring moongdal. 🙂

  2. with all the delicious salads you put together who would’ve known your ambivalence at the beginning
