Matki aur Kheera Salad -Sprouted Beans, Cucumber and Iceberg Lettuce Salad


Here is a really simple salad to make on a busy day.

100 gms matki /sprouted moth beans

1 small head of iceberg lettuce

1 cucumber chopped into small cubes.

2 cloves crushed garlic

1 tsp olive oil

Juice of 1/2 lime

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Salt to taste.

Take the two cloves of garlic and rub a creamic bowl with them.

Heat a litre of water to a rolling boil. Dunk in washed sprouts/matki and cook for 2 minutes. Drain well.

Wash lettuce thoroughly. If you do not have a salad drier, put lettuce in the centre of a clean tea towel , gather all four points of the tea towel together and swing around the head like a lasso, a couple of times. Your lettuce will now be sufficiently dry. Gently tear into pieces.

Put lettuce, chopped cucumber and matki in the bowl and add the oil , lime juice, pepper and salt. Mix well.
