Carrot Kosambari - Carrot and Moong Dal Salad

I had not tasted Kosambari until a friend of mine made it for our get together. I would never have made it cause of the raw moong dal in it. But after tasting what she made, I wanted to make it. But completely forgot about it. When Kalyani announced Magic Mingle with Moong Dal and Pepper, I decided to give this a shot. Usually Green Chillies are used to spice this dish. The problem with using green chillies in salads is that my little one will decide it is spicy. Mind you, he eats a lot of spicy dishes if he likes it. So the pepper was an excellent idea to add some spice to it without him complaining and it goes well with our Magic Mingle theme as well.


Carrots Shredded 1.5 cups
Split Yellow Moong Dal 1/4 cup
Pepper Powder 1/4 tsp
Lemon Juice 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves to garnish
Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Soak the Moong Dal for atleast 1 hour. Drain and add to the bowl.

2. Grate carrots and add to the bowl.

3. Add pepper powder, lemon juice, salt and coriander leaves. Mix well and serve
