One of the easiest and healthiest of all the salads- sprouted green gram salad. Sprouted green gram is rich in protein, easy to digest and when combined with some colourful vegetables and Indian spices make for a very fulfilling healthy evening snack.

You need to slightly plan ahead for this salad, as soaking and sprouting can take around 2 to 3 days depending on the temperature of your place. The recipe is very flexible, add or replace any vegetables of choice. You can also do multiple sprouted salad.


1 cup sprouts

Soak one cup of green gram (moong) overnight insufficient water. Drain the excess water in the morning. This step is common for both the methods mentioned below.

*Using sprout maker
I have a sprout maker, so I put soaked moong along with water in it and they are ready in 12-15 hours.

*Using cloth
Take a cotton cloth/cheesecloth and tie the soaked moong in it. Then place it in a warm place and check for sprouting in 1-2 days.
Depending on the temperature at your place, it may take more or less time.


Peanuts, pressure cooked for 1 whistle/ boil in water for 10 minutes- 1/2 cup
Finely chopped yellow/red pepper- 1/4 cup
Finely chopped onions- 1/4 cup
Finely chopped tomatoes- 1/4 cup
Finely chopped coriander- for garnishing


Chaat masala- 2 teaspoons
Salt- to taste
Roasted cumin powder- 1/2 teaspoon
Chilly flakes/green chillies chopped/red chilli powder- according to taste preference
Lemon juice- from 1 big lemon


  1. In a microwave on high power, cook the sprouted moong for 3 to 4 minutes, tossing once in between. This removes any unwanted odour and bacterial growth from the sprouts.
  2. You can also saute the sprouts in 1 teaspoon oil in a non-stick pan.
    Allow the sprouts to cool down, transfer it to a big bowl.
  3. Add boiled peanuts.
  4. Add all the chopped vegetables except coriander.
  5. Mix in lemon juice, salt and all other spices. Toss the sprouts well.
    Garnished with coriander.
