Chana Dal Salad




Chana dal salad is a popular salad in southern parts
of India. While growing up in Bangalore, I vividly
remember this salad was the "Prasadam" in a nearby
temple.

Since I like to eat raw food sometimes, I recently
made chana dal salad. I loved the taste of this simple
salad. I'm sure I will be making this salad regularly
during summer.

Chana Dal Salad

1/4 cup Chana dal
1 cucumber
1 carrot
1/4 tsp canola oil
1/8 tsp mustard seeds
1 red chili, broken into pieces
1 tsp lemon juice
salt

Soak chana dal for about 5 hours. Drain the water.
Finely chop the cucumber into small pieces. Grate the
carrot. Mix soaked chana dal, carrot and cucumber. Add
salt and lemon juice to the salad.

In a small pan, heat oil, add mustard seeds. Once the
mustard seeds pop, add broken red chili pieces. Add
this mixture to chana dal salad. Garnish with
cilantro or unsweetened coconut.
