Dish: Moong dal Salad (Vadapappu Salad)
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.
