So, here is one more salad recipe from my kitchen – this time one that has been in our family for generations. I don’t think there is anything new about this recipe. I am sure many of you make carrot salad at home, but the dressing styles might be different. Here is our way of making a simple carrot salad.
Ingredients (serves 2):
2 cups grated carrot (you can grate it fine or thick, depending upon your preference)
Salt, to taste
2 green chillies, very, very finely chopped
A small bunch of coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon oil
A pinch of asafoetida
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
Lemon juice, to taste
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the grated carrot, salt and lemon juice to taste, chopped green chillies and coriander. Mix well.
- Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, and allow them to splutter. Switch off the gas and add the asafoetida. Let it sizzle for a second.
- Add the mustard seeds-asafoetida garnish to the mixing bowl. Mix well.
- Let the salad sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
