This recipe is adapted from a carrot salad recipe I found on one of the south indian blogs. It is a very refreshing salad and I like it very much. The sauteed mustard seeds add an extra flavour to the salad.
2 carrots shredded
1 green apple Shredded
Fresh Cilantro – 1 tbs
1tbs fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp ginger grated
salt to taste
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp mustard seeds
a few fresh curry leaves
1 small green chilli (optional)
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1. Mix together the shredded carrots and apple. Add chopped cilantro.
2. Heat 1/2 tsp vegetable oil in a small sauce pan. Add the mustard seeds when the oil is just hot to make them splutter. Add the chopped curry leaves and remove immediately and pour it on the shredded salad mix.
3. Add lemon juice, salt and sugar, toss well and serve. Enjoy!
