Barley & Red Rice Salad

This is a modified version of the salad that Viky Ratnani demonstrated in one of his shows. First time, i felt I had a healthy salad that tasted as good as a chaat. 


1. Steamed red rice – 3/4 cup
2. Steamed barley – 1/2 cup
3. Cooked rajma – 1/2 cup
4. Pomegranate beads – a handful
5. Coriander – 3 tbsp finely chopped
6. Onion – 1 chopped
7. Orange – 1/2
8. Lemon – 1/2
9. Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
10. Olive oil – 1 tbsp


Step 1: Drain the water from cooked rice, barley and rajma. Spread them in a wide bowl to let the moisture evaporate.
Step 2: Add pomegranate beads, coriander, chopped onion and toss well with olive oil.
Step 3: Add this to cooked grains; then squeeze in orange juice, lemon juice, sprinkle pepper, salt and mix well.
Step 4: Serve chilled or as is.
