Whole Moong Salad

Whole moong salad is one nutritious salad prepared regularly at my place. Sometimes when I am too lazy to cook lunch for myself, this is just the thing for me.. My hubby loves this for breakfast since this is very quick n easy with some preparations on previous day! Just some sprouted moong and some Indian salad vegetables at hand and its ready.. Whole moong, rich in protein, makes a good salad with other salad vegetables topped with some fresh lemon juice... Here's Whole Moong Salad for Nupur's "W of Indian Vegetables"

Great Recipe.
Can the Moong be boiled cause it tastes much better then or does it loose all the nutrition
