Kosambari is a speciality of karnataka. I would call Kosambari, an Indian Salad. Traditionally, Kosambari is a mixture of raw vegetables (Grated/Cubed) and soaked lentils (Channa Dal/Moong Dal) & seasoned with chillies & mustard seeds.
At my place, I make this alteast once a week. I love it some much that I sometimes have it as an evening snack. I have always loved eating Kosambari along with Rice & Rasam. A very yummy combo.
Here is the recipe:
Preparation time: 10 mins - excluding soaking time for lentils.
You will need:
- Grated Carrot - 1 cup
- Channa Dal - 3/4 cup - soaked in water for 2 - 3 hours
- 1 green chilli - chopped
- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- Salt as per taste
- 1 tsp oil
- In a bowl, Mix together grated carrots & Soaked Channa Dal
- Temper with mustard seeds & green chillies
- Add lemon juice & Salt as per taste
- Mix well & Serve
Can also be served with roti/chapati. Goes Best with Rice & Rasam/Sambhar as a Side Dish
