Carrot and Green mung sprout salad(stir fry),Quick and easy recipe

I am having loads of fatty food now a days..and its summer i am not able to wear any of my summer dress...feeling very sad...only 2 -3 months its high time to start proper diet in my food. So thought of preparing and eating some kind of salads.....but don't feel like having all raw veggie thought of preparing with some twist....

Green mung sprout 1 bowl(I prepared at home see notes )
Coconut oil or cooking oil 2tsp
Urad lentil 1/2 tsp
Mustered 1/2 tsp
turmeric 1/2 tsp
Green chilly 2 sliced
curry leaves 4-5
Fresh grated carrot 1/2 cup(1 big carrot)
Salt to taste & sugar 1/2 tsp
lemon juice 1 tsp


Heat the oil add urad lentil,and green chilly once urad lentil is golden brown add mustered, turmeric,curry leaves saute for 2mins then add mung sprout, give a good stir ,and then add grated carrot mix well and then add salt,sugar and lemon juice mix well, after 2mins turn of the heat.

serve hot or chilled....

This salad can also be served with rooti or can be served as side dish as well.....

Note: to prepare mung sprout at home:soak the green mung beans over night and next day drain the water and cover this soaked mung with the lid and keep aside in a warm place for more then 12 hours...Mung sprout is ready to use.
