Here's an easy way to have a healthy accompaniment to your main course. Barley has been used to enhance the fibre content and sweet corn gives a crispy texture to the salad. The red and yellow capsicum and spring onions add colour to the dish and make it extremely appealing to the eye.

Ingredients

1/4 cup barley (jau) , washed and drained
5 tbsp sweet corn kernels (makai ke dane)

1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
1 tsp roasted cumin seeds (jeera) powder
2 tsp lemon juice
