Feb 28 - Five color Carrot Salad
We eat first with our eyes. and nothing vouches for this truth as much as a colorful version of the same old Kosmalli - a traditional South Indian salad with carrots (of course, cucumbers and tomatoes are players in this mix, but as a supporting role). Of late Grocery stores have begun stocking organic carrots. Five to be precise, white, yellow, orange red and purple.
The salad itself is simple, a blend shredded carrots, hydrated split mung beans, salt and finely minced green chilies. A tempering of Mustard seeds and urad dal, and finally a finish with a generous spritz of lime or lemon juice. Health and deliciousness at its colorful best.
