Salad Ingredients : 1 Cup Grated Coconut ( Grate through the biggest hole in the grater ) . 500 Grams Asparagus ( Peel , cut 1.5 " ) 8 Tomatoes ( Seeds removed , cut long and thin ) . 2/3d Cup Moong Dal ( Soaked in cold water with salt , 2 - 3 hours ) . Fistful Green Coriander ( Roughly chopped ) . 2-3 Green Chilies ( Or more , minced ) . Juice of 2 Lemons ( Adjust ) . Salt . The Chownk: 1 1/2 Teaspoon Rai. 1/8th Teaspoon HIng. 2 Tablespoon Refined Oil . 5-6 Red Chiles . 2-3 Sprigs Curry Putta.
Keep icy cold water in a bowl handy . In boiling hot water add 1/2
teaspoon sugar , and add asparagus . Blanch for no more than 20 seconds ,
drain and put to cool off in the chilled bath . This also prevents
further cooking .10 minutes later drain and set aside. Drain the water from the daal , and lightly mix all the salad ingredients .
In hot oil prepare the chownk by spluttering rai , hing , curry leaves
and red chiles , toss 30 to a minute seconds and incorporate into the
mixed salad . Taste and adjust flavors .The sum total is fresh and
delicious Sikandalous Cuisine https://www.facebook.com/groups/325180622895/
