We usually associate chaat with unhealthy fried foods or ones that have been cooked using loads of oil.

Sprouted Moong Chaat is a healthy variation which has all the flavour and none of the calories we relate chaat with.

Sprouts provide plenty of protein, vitamin C and iron to your diet and the protein content is further enhanced by the addition of steamed gram flour dumplings.

a very unusual and a unique salad.. well and these steamed dumplings remind me of the sausages that are usually added to non-vegetarian salads... but however here in this recipe... its totally vegetarian... giving you the same look and feel and still keeping your dietary preference intact... loved this warm, mildly flavored salad..
