Blogging after a long hiatus..life can get very busy sometimes! I was craving for something nice and simple which could serve as a side for lunch and as a snack. Thats when I got reminded of this kosambri that amma makes all the time. Kosambri in kannada is nothing but a salad usually with some soaked dal like chana or moong. But this one is a very simple recipe and perfect for a summer day!
Ingredients : Serves 2
2 medium-sized carrots, grated.
1 large ripe tomato.
2 dried red chillies
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
2-3 table spoons chopped cilantro/ coriander
Mix the grated carrots, tomato, lemon juice, salt and coriander in a big bowl. Heat the oil in a small pan, add mustard seeds and the red chillies. Break the chillies into half or quarters. This gets the seeds out and adds heat to the dish. Once the mustard seeds splutter, add this to the salad, mix well and server immediately.
