1/2 cup whole black gram (kalo channa), dry
1/2 cup whole mung beans, dry
1/2 red onion, chopped
fresh green chilies, chopped (to taste)
salt to taste
lime juice, from 1 lime or to taste
These dry beans are available at Indian grocery stores. If you’re unable to find whole black gram, you can make the salad with mung beans only.
