Moong dal salad is a healthy salad to serve in any meal. It is usually made during festivals and ceremonies in South India.

Salads form an important part of our diet. Here I have used moongdal to make it. This version is called as moongdal salad koshambir and is usually made during functions. It is served to ladies during haldi kumkum. One can make it as an accompaniment with rice or chapati.
