Sprout Salad

Sprouts (moth, mulai) is often used to make a salad in India. Theses sprouts are easily available in the market in Delhi/NCR. I used to buy them regularly. In recent times, however, I make my own sprouts at home. For two reasons – because I am not sure of the quality of the store bought ones and they are really easy to make at home. If you do not have a sprout maker, please invest in one. They come in real handy, I love this sprout salad and serve it quite often,

1/2 cup whole green lentil (sabut moong, pachai payaru)
1 small cucumber, chopped fine
1 medium sized tomato, chopped fine
1 green chilli, chopped fine
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 small onion
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper powder (kali mirch powder, kurumilagu podi)
Soak the lentil for at least a day
Drain the water and transfer to a sprout maker
