Salad time here..Our salads traditionally are called Kosambari. Kosambari is a mixture of fresh vegetables, pulses and dressed with a touch of expeller pressed peanut oil, hing, mustard, green chillies, salt and lemon juice. 
Some of the vegetables popular in Kosambaris include carrot, cucumber, kohlrabi, cabbage, radish, onions, tomatoes....

Salt to taste
Expeller pressed peanut oil 1 tsp
Hing a pinch
Mustard seeds 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves  a handful

Method:
  • Toss all the vegetables in a  big bowl.
  • Heat oil in a small wok. Once the oil is hot, throw in the hing and mustard. Once the mustard stops spluttering throw in the curry leaves. Remove from heat. 
  • Pour the seasoned oil on to the vegetables. Adjust salt, lemon juice and serve it immediately.
