sprouted green moong dal barley kosamabri

Kosambari is a very popular salad from the state of Karnataka. Kosambari is generally made with soaked dal, sprouted green moong dal or vegetables.

Today In addition to the sprouted green moong dal, I have also used cooked barley. The addition of barley makes this salad a complete meal by itself. Because of the addition of cucumbers, this salad needs to be eaten immediately after you make it. The high water content in the cucumber makes the salad soggy if left for longer time.  If you are planning to make  ahead, just prep all the veggies and mix right before you serve. Another option is to skip the cucumber in the salad.

Hope you try and enjoy this refreshing salad.
