This recipe was sent by dear and old friend Amrita who has always produced inventive food, quite without fuss, while remaining a vocal and significant part of all discussions, arguments and conversations that were carried on in her hospitable living room.She sent it to share, in response to the Gajar Salad I posted a couple of weeks ago. It has the same health giving characteristics but tastes luxuriously different.
250 gms sprouted mung
100 gms cubed or crumbled paneer /cottage cheese.(You could substitute feta cheese but if you do cut down the salt in the recipe)
1 cup chopped spring onions.( I used 1/2 a plain red onion as I had no spring onions)
2 tbsp whole pudina /mint leaves
2 tbsp finely chopped parsley (or coriander)
1/2 tsp zest of lemon or 2 tsp of orange
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
Combine all the ingredients. Add salt and mix well. Combine the honey and lime juice and pour over the salad just before serving.Taken twice a day this is supposed to be good for high blood pressure. Taken on an empty stomach it is said to reduce blood sugar.
