Carrot Salad(Carrot kosmir/kosambir)


Carrot is supposed to be very good for eyes. Some people (like me) don’t like it when carrot is added to sambar. So kosmir or kosambir is a healthy and delicious way of eating it.

2 cups grated carrot

1/2 tea spns each mustard seeds, cumin seeds(optional) and urad dal (optional)
4-5 green chillies

2 tea spns grated coconut
2-3 strands coriander leaves
Oil
Salt

Method:
Add chopped chillies, lemon juice, coconut and curd/yogurt to grated carrots. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard, cumin seeds and urad dal. When they start to splutter add this to carrot. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 15min
