Sprouts and Peanut Salad

Sprouts and Pea Nut Salad  

After festival season, so much heavy festive food and sweets, we need to take some light and healthy options. Here is a simple sprout salad. Normally eating sprouts leaves some bitter taste in mouth which is not liked by many of us. Nevertheless the nutrients content of sprouts are always excellent.

Hence I made this salad in a partial cooked manner where usual sprout taste gets eliminated. With peanut powder added to it, we get a good crunchy taste and flavour gets boosted.







Preparation Time : 10 min

Cooking Time : 5 -7 Min

Ingredients :


  • 1 Bowl mix sprouts
  • 1 Cucumber chopped
  • 1 Tomato chopped
  • 2 Spring onions chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 2 Tablespoon roasted and crushed peanuts
  • 2 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • Iceberg lettuce 
  • Salt according to taste
  • Few curry leaves
  • 1 Teaspoon mustard seed
  • Pinch of hing
  • 1 Teaspoon cooking oil
Procedure : 
  • Finish all cutting and chopping

  • Roast peanuts, crush them and keep aside



  • In a pan take 3/4th cup of water, heat it and as it starts boiling add sprouts to this and cook it for 5 to 6 minutes or till all the water gets evaporated 






  • Transfer these cooked sprouts in a bowl, add chopped cucumber, tomato, spring onions, iceberg, green chillies, roasted peanuts and lemon juice








  • Take another pan, add a teaspoon of oil to this once it is heated add mustard seeds, pinch of hing and curry leaves add this mixture to your salad


  • Now add crushed peanuts, salt and lemon juice to this, mix it well and enjoy it ...
