Horsegram Salad With Mixed Veggies

Salad and soups with sides, this is my theme for this week's blogging marathon coz both soups and salads are our favourite evening dinner. Since i make different soups or salads for our dinner atleast thrice a week,this theme sounds very easy for me. Today's post is also an evening dinner we had few days back with some rotis. Horsegram are very much adviced to add in your diet often if you want to reduce your weight. We Indians,cook horsegram with many spices as different dishes from gravies to spice powder. These horsegram beans are excellent source of iron, very nutritious as well. Do add this nutritious beans often in your menu and enjoy the goodness.

Horsegram salad is one of my recent favourite, this salad gets ready very quickly with simple veggies and cooked horsegram beans. I spiced up this salad simply with olive oil dressing, and this healthy salad tastes fabulous when served along with rotis or else simply as stuffing wrapped with rotis. The choice is yours, horsegram salad with rotis makes a satisfying, nutritious dinner definitely.Sending this bowl of comforting soup to my event Healthy Diet-Soups and Salads hosted by Rafeeda.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38.
