Quinoa Moong salad





Back to school!!! isnt it too early to be away for few hrs from kids ? Vacation is always fun with kids. But its time for them to learn more exciting things in school. I wish i could go to school , I love study, new books, stationary and specially Uniform ,which is no longer here in public school. 

After funfilled vacation in New york and toronto now back to normal diet regime . what do you say?
Too much junk food and outdoor eating is not good for me. well not for anyone if you are really into healthy lifestyle.

Everytime I goto Costco, I love to find new salad . I have  tried few and now I feel like its worth to make them at home. Balanced oil and salt proportion is different if you make them at home. So finally I have decided to make them at home.

Quinoa is the best grains to cook so easily. Sometimes , you have to just watch how you are preparing it becasue instruction on pack wont justified the amount of water, oh in my case :(

Green moong is my favortie lentils. Sprouted , boiled or cooked in any form they are so delicious and healthy. Salad, soup, curry, chilli , sandwich , chat, you name it , they are so easy to toss and assemble in any recipes.

So , I have made this salad and I am telling you the truth is its totally awesome. and I liked it because I have added black salt. Taste like chat.

Easy to make.
