Sprouted Moong and Bulgur Wheat Salad

Bulgur wheat and Sprouted wheat are packed with nutritious goodies. Both of them are also low glycemic foods. if you're wondering what that is any food that has a high Glycemic Index (GI), ie > 70 have been known to increase to sugar levels.
It's simple and satisfying salad and it's my lunch today!

I did not measure anything as I just threw in stuff that was available in my fridge.

2 hand full of bulgur wheat
1 handfull of sprouted moong bean
2 cup of water.
1 jalapeno pepper, cut into small pieces
1 small carrot chooped fine
couple of spoons of chooped tomato
lemon juice to taste.
1 tsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
a pinch of Hing.

Boil water and add it to the Bulgur wheat. cover and let it stand for 30 mts. Drain the excess water.
add the moong sprouts, carrot, tomato, salt, cilantro and lemon juice according to taste.
In a pan add oil. Once hot add the mustard seed sand let it pop. now add the Jalapeno pepper, hing and saute for a few seconds.
Add this as a tadka to the salad.
So easy to put together in the morning

Now pack and off to work!
