Mission accomplished!! My husband who always finds an excuse to not eat salad ate half of the salad…yay!! He even said he enjoyed it 😛 …I am so pleased 🙂 :). This is a great option for person with diabetes as fenugreek helps control blood sugar. Just avoid boiled potatoes. Fenugreek seeds are used in traditional medicine to treat kidney aliments and colds and to alleviate pain associated with arthritis. Fenugreek contains a wide variety of beneficial nutrients, including iron, magnesium, manganese, and copper, as well as vitamin B6, protein, and dietary fiber. Fenugreek also contains a number of powerful phytonutrients, including choline, trigonelline, yamogenin, gitogenin, diosgenin, tigogenin and neotigogens. I am using sprouted seeds which is even better. Fenugreek seeds are bitter in taste but when you sprout it, it looses the bitterness.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
1/3 cup sprouted fenugreek seeds uncooked
Small piece of cucumber
1/2 tomato seeded
1/2 boiled potato
Salt to taste
1. To sprout fenugreek seeds follow this recipe.
2. Cut seeded tomato, boiled potato, cucumber and strawberry in thin slices.
3. In a mixing bowl, add sprouted seeds, slices of tomato, potato, cucumber, and strawberry. Keep few strawberry slices for garnishing. Mix well. Add lemon juice, salt, cumin powder and half of raisins. Mix everything. Taste and adjust salt or lemon juice as needed.
4. Transfer to salad bowl and garnish with chopped coriander/cilantro, raisins and strawberry slices and serve.
You can also add your favourite nuts or seeds to add some crunch to the salad. Avoid potato if you want to make Jain version.
