THAI CUCUMBER AND PINEAPPLE SALAD

Recently i got a Thai vegetarian cook book from a friend and i saw many interesting Thai recipes
in that book and i noted down few interesting recipes which i will post one by one. This
Pineapple and cucumber salad which i tried 2 days back turned out totally awesome.I can say it
is a perfect and refreshing salad and a must try salad at home for this summer.

INGREDIENTS: [SERVES 3-4]


PINEAPPLE (CUBED)

1 CUP

CUCUMBER

RED CHILLI FLAKES

TO TASTE

SOYA SAUCE

1/2 TSP

ROASTED PEANUTS

1/4 CUP

I didnt make any step wise pictures as i was very easy to make and no cooking is involved.
METHOD:

Cube the pineapple and cucumber.( i used the Japanese cucumber)


If using the Indian cucumber, scoop out the seeds if you dont like and peel off the skin
too.
In a wide bowl, combine the pineapple, cucumber and add the red chilli flakes.
Crush the roasted peanuts in a mixer coarsely and add to the salad.
Mix well. since the peanuts i used the salted roasted peanuts i didnt add salt.
Serve immediately. If serving later, add the peanuts before serving.

SPROUTED MOONG BEAN SALAD RECIPE | SPROUTS SALAD

When i posted the recipe of HOMEMADE SPROUTS i wanted to post the recipe of this salad
too as sprouts are available in my kitchen almost everyday. Since my hubby is preparing for the
Singapore Marathon which is coming up this weekend i wanted to include more of salads,
spinach and green veggies in the diet. So i made this salad two days back and the lovely wooden
bowls which Raji bought for me from Bali complimented the clicks.

CHICKPEAS SALAD WITH THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING

RECIPE FOR BOTH- a LOW FAT VERSION OF


THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING WITHOUT EGGS
Salads are always a super hit at my place. When i soaked channa for making Channa pulao i felt
it was little extra and kept a 1/2 cup of soaked chickpeas aside for making salad. Suddenly i
thought of making the salad with a dressing and i adopted this Thousand island dressing from
Tarla dalals cook book. Though we get readymade Thousand island dressing in super markets,
most of them contains eggs. So i wanted to try it out at home and it is a low fat version of Salad
and diet watchers go ahead to try out the recipe of chickpeas salad with Thousand island
dressing.

INGREDIENTS ( FOR THOUSAND ISLAND DRESSING)


YOGURT

1/2 NO.
1/2 NO.
1/4 CUP
1/2
1/2 TSP

FOR THE DRESSING:

I used the mortar and pestle to make mustard powder.

Chop the carrots, onions and combine the boiled chickpeas, boiled chickpeas, cabbage
and pepper in a wide bowl.

Just before serving combine all the salad and thousand island dressing.
Mix well. Serve immediately.

Note:
1. Vegetables used in the salad is truly optional. I just added the veggies which i had in my
hand.
2. The dressing has to be consumed on the same day. Do not store for more than 5 hours.

HOME MADE SPROUTS RECIPE | HOW TO MAKE SPROUTS
GREEN MOONG SPROUTS
I dont know how i missed posting this recipe in my space, as it is a usual practice at my place
to make sprouts twice in a week. My husband and his brothers and even my mil used to eat raw
sprouts everyday along with breakfast. Initially i was hesitant to eat the raw sprouts and later

when i started eating them raw, i liked the taste and even my daughter also started liking this and
she used to eat this raw. I learnt to make this easy way from my mil and i wanted to share this
recipe today.

INGREDIENTS:
GREEN MOONG DAL- 1/2 CUP

METHOD:

Wash and soak the green moong dal in water for 6 hours.
Drain the water completely.

Spread this in a casserole (hot box| hot pack) and close it and keep it untouched for 7-8
hours.(preferably over night)

You can see the nice moong sprouts the next morning.

NOTE:
1. The quality of moong bean is most important and if it is not of a good one sprouting will
not happen properly.
2. Always select a dark green colour green moong bean.
3. Always soak the green moong dal in clean drinking water.
4. Soaking time should not be less than 6 hours.
5. If using any other lentil like black channa or white channa, soak for10 to 11 hours.
Will soon post some interesting recipes with sprouts.
