Hesarubele Kosambari (Mung Dal Salad)

Whenever I attend a wedding or any small function in Bangalore where the meal served on a green banana leaf, the popular side dish is Hesarubele Kosambari that is Mung Dal Salad. Mung dal (green gram dal) is very easy to digest. This Kosambari is nutritious, It helps digestion and is good for constipation. You can have 1 bowl of this salad as your breakfast also.

Mung Dal - 1 cup
Grated Fresh coconut - 1/2 cup
Chopped green chilly - 1-2
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tablespoon
Lemon juice - 2 teaspoon
Salt & sugar to taste
For tempering
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Mustard seeds (Rai) - 1 teaspoon
Asafetida (Hing) -1 pinch
Curry leaves - 2-3


Soak the Mung dal for 3 to 4 hours. Drain the water with strainer. Take it in a bowl and add grated coconut, green chilly, coriander leaves, lemon juice, salt & sugar and mix wel. Heat the oil in small kadai add mustard seeds, when it splutter add curry leaves and asafetida. Pour this tadaka on the mixture and mix it. Salad is ready. You can add grated carrot, finely chopped cucumber or during mango season, add grated raw mangoes instead of lemon juice.
