Ity Tiwari runs Indian Cookery Courses at her home in Wallisellen just north of Zurich. Relaxed and informative the classes are fun to join and you learn so much too! We were lucky enough to be invited to one of them and this is the recipe which Carmen prepared that evening.

This salad is made from sprouting mung beans. Ity grows these at home herself, but if you don’t want to grow your own, you can easily buy them at a health shop or an Indian grocery. If you want to grow your own – see here.
