Egg White Salad

I found this recipe in a facebook group  #Eatlo India. The recipe credit goes to my beautiful facebook friend Nimrata Kaur. She made it as her breakfast dish. I was fascinated by the simple though luscious, healthy recipe. The key ingredients are Egg whites and Greek Yogurt or hung curd as we call it in India.  I made it as side of Prawn Satay with minor additions. It can be eaten as wholesome breakfast paired with a cool drink like ice apple smoothie or choose options like Papaya pomegranate smash, melon cooler, watermelon gazpacho, mango melon slush or simple butter milk. Super nutritious, yummy and very filling as explained by my friend in her post.
