Carrot Kosambari salad

Carrot Kosambari, a colorful nutritious salad with grated carrots and moong dhal.  This is a traditional dish of karnataka and served as prasadam in temples. I love the addition of lime juice to it for it gives a distinctive sour juicy taste. you can also add grated cucumbers to it.

Cooking Essentials:

          Carrot                          1 grated
          Moong dal                  1 /2 cup  
          coconut                        1tbsp (optional)                                                                                   

For Seasoning
          mustards                       1tsp
          cumin seeds                   1tsp
          curry leaves                   few

          green chillies                  2 no
          lemon                            1/2 lemon
          oil for seasoning

How to cook?

  •   Pressure cook moong dal for 1 whistle. do not overcook it and make it mushy. The lentils  should be half cooked.                                                           
  • Add grated carrots to it. Heat oil in a pan and fry the seasoning items and mix it with the salad.           
  • Finally, squeeze some lemon juice and toss the salad. Serve it as a tea time snack or just munch it whenever you crave for a healthy snack:)
