Carrot Kosumbari

Carrot Kosumbari

Kosumbari is a traditional salad made out of raw veggies. Sometimes they do have a seasoning, just to perk up the taste. I learnt this from my sister. The first time I had it I was amazed, the lemon and the seasoning really gives a different taste to carrots.

2 cups shredded carrots
1 tsp oil
pinch of mustard, urad dal, jeera
1 green chilli
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tbsp shredded coconut, optional
2-3 sprigs cilantro/coriander leaves
juice of lime

Wash, peel and grate the carrots. Finely chop green chillies. Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, jeera, add urad dal. Add green chillies and fry till its cooked. Add curry leaves. Add the seasoning to the carrots. Squeeze a juice of lime/lemon. Add salt and mix thoroughly. Garnish with coconut and cilantro

You can substitute carrots with beetroots too. Use it raw or just microwave or steam cook it before using.
