I am trying to include some raw vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, radish, beets and some other crunchy veggies in our daily diet. As you know by now, I am the queen of disguising veggies in our food. My mom made this salad at least three times a week, that I stopped making it after marriage. The thought of radish gave me a weird taste in my mouth. But things change with age, I now enjoy eating this as is or with phulka.
You will need;
1 cup grated radish
1 medium green chili
cilantro to garnish
1 tbspn roasted peanut powder
salt and sugar to taste
1 tspn lime juice
1 tspn ghee/clarified butter
1 tsp jeera/cumin
1 pinch hing
In a bowl, mix h grated radish with the peanut powder, salt, sugar, cilantro and lime juice and mix, In a small wok/pot/kadhai heat the ghee, splutter the jeera and then add the green chili and the hing. Take it off the heat and mix it with the radish mixture. the salad/koshimbir is done. Adding the tadka is completely optional, but add it as there is a noticeable difference in the taste after adding it. Please use ghee for the tadka. the taste will be different with you replace ghee with oil for the tadka.
We love making such koshimbir/salad with grated carrot or cabbage also. Add a salad to you meal now on. make this your new year resolution.
