Moong Dal Salad / Hesaru Bele Kosambari

Moong Dal Salad or known in Kannada as Hesaru bele Kosambari is a famous Kannada style salad prepared with moong dal, Green Gram, channa dal, etc.., tempered with mustard seeds. I had this salad at a hotel where this was served in South Indian{Kannada}lunch thali , and I just liked it in the first place. At home I made and so decided to post it here too. It is usually prepared during occasions like festivals, marriages, family feasts, also during regular lunchtime etc.

Moong Dal 1 cup
Carrot  1 medium, grated
Coconut 1 tbsp, grated
Green Chili 1, finely chopped
Salt as per taste
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp
Freshly chopped Coriander leaves 1 tbsp
To Temper:
Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Asafoetida a pinch

Wash and soak moong dal in water for two hours, and drain off the water and keep aside. 

In a bowl, add moong dal, grated carrot, grated coconut, chopped green chili, chopped coriander leaves, salt, lemon juice and mix well.

In a tempering pan, heat oil. Once heated, add mustard seeds. As it crackles, add asafoetida, switch off flame and pour it over the moong dal and mix well.

Garnish and serve immediately{as the salad will leave water}.
