Step 1.To start with, first wash all the vegetables mentioned above- broccoli/ cauliflower, carrot, beans, lettuce/ cabbage leaves, beet root, mushroom, corn kernels, onion, garlic, ginger, coriander and mint leaves, red/yellow bell pepper or capsicum, tomato. Washing is very necessary as nowadays vegetable are grown using a lot of pesticides so it is best to wash it well.
Step 2. Next, you need to boil the black chickpea and bean sprouts. Soak them at least before four hours for quick boiling, add half tea spoon of salt while boiling as it kills all germs and also helps to quicken your boiling process. Once it is boiled let it cool down.
Step 3. Now, cut or dice all the vegetables except lettuce /cauliflower leaves, ginger, garlic, tomato, onion, chili. Once diced, put a pan of water with half tea spoon of salt so that once the water starts to boil put all the vegetables except lettuce into it and blanch them for four to five minutes. This process will help your vegetables to get cooked and in the same time, it will be free from all pesticides and other chemicals. Once done take it out from water and let it cool.
Step 4. Crush the ginger and garlic and chop the onion into cubes as per the shape of your choice.
Step 5. Put a pan on flame and add three table spoon of olive oil into it. Once the oil gets hot add crushed ginger and garlic. Then add onion and tomatoes which are diced. After that, add all the vegetables and boiled sprouts into it and just toss it well for two minutes and put the flame off and let it cool.
Step 6. In a bowl mix all the vegetables, sprouts and add one tea spoon of pepper powder, green chili, coriander powder (optional), two table spoon of mayonnaise, one to two table spoon of shredded cheese and half tea spoon of sugar powder/ sugar-free.
Step 7. Let it cool down for ten to fifteen minutes.
Step 8. In case you are vegetarian, add cottage cheese/ paneer. Now to add paneer you need to dice it into shapes and size you want. Cube size will look best. The paneer dices must be tossed and slightly fried with olive oil and a pinch of salt before adding it to the salad.
In case you are Eggetarian, add two boiled eggs, cut it into slices before you add to the salad.
In case you are non-vegetarian, take three hundred grams of boneless chicken cut it into strips, boil it with a pinch of salt. Once it is boiled drench it and toss it or slightly fry it with olive oil.
Take a plate as per your choice, put lettuce or cabbage leaves on it and serve the which you have prepared, then add paneer/ cottage cheese or boiled sliced eggs or shredded chicken pieces over it. For garnishing use coriander leaves and mint leaves.
