SALAD AEH?!.. A BOWL OF SWEET 'N SOUR

I was thinking to make something unusual from usual one to tickle my family’s tongue. My li’l one is fond of lemon squeezed onions. My daughter love to have raw (small ones) onion as side dish for Parppu Podi sadham with mor kulambu. Both are lovers of raw onions. So I made this in few mts with simple ingredients from my pantry.


INGREDIENTS

Sprouted Chenna ¼ cup

Onion 1

Cucumber 1

Lemon 1

Plantain stem ½ (vala thandu)

Some dry fruits

Pepper powder a pinch

Salt to taste

Coriander for garnishing

METHOD

Make thin slices out of lemon, onion, Cucumber and plantain stem as shown in the pic.

cook the sprouted Chenna with little salt.

Combine them by adding salt, pepper powder and few drops of lemon juice.

Thats it.. salad is ready.

U can even finely chop all the veggies to make this salad.

Since my kids love to pick and dip them in a lemon juice I have cut those to thin slices.

Enjoy the fresh and healthy salad.
