Moong Dal is one of my most favourite lentils.. having it like a salad was a delight. Cabbage added a crunch to it and mild flavourings defined the salads simplicity and how simple it is to make as well..

A different type of salad with a hint of Indian tempering. Cabbage and moong dal pair well to make this healthy delicacy which can be had as a salad or even as an evening snack.
