Sprouts Salad Recipe with Sprouted Lentil(moong sprouts) and boiled peanuts

                         Whenever my amma (mother) makes sprouting of beans,etc; I will just be marvelling over the process. This wonderful world is full of wonders. 
                        I remember one of close friend sprouting this moong beans in our college hostel. She is an encyclopedia with ample information available with her and keeps on experimenting on things. Sprouting was also one of her experiments with sparse utensils available (like plates and tumblers). We friends together reap the benefits of good experiments.

                      Intake of sprouts alone, is difficult for my family as a whole. So added boiled peanuts, with some dash of pepper and salt. This combo made my day...
