During summers its ideal for our bodies to take cooling fruits and vegetables to keep us hydrated. With the scorching sun we are left with dehydration and thirst. Although I am someone who does not enjoy salads, the weather just makes me crave for fresh vegetables that a lightly tossed with or without spices. My current favourite has been green gram and especially the sprouted ones which has a light crunch and makes this salad so enjoyable yet so filling too. You can have this light salad as a breakfast or midday snack if you are looking for something light. They say sprouts are full of water content unlike the cooked grams. In this recipe I have used a steaming method to keep all the goodness of green gram intact, unlike cooking them in water.

You can make this salad with your favourite ingredients likes onions, tomato or even add curd/ dahi to make it more refreshing. I have made this sprouted green gram salad with cucumber, ripe raw mangoes and freshly chopped coriander with a drizzle or fresh lime juice, salt.
