Saturday, August 2, 2008


This is my amma’s(my mom's) favorite salad. Whenever Amma makes chappati she will try her best to make time to rustle up this salad. Of course my dearest Appa will always be there to help her in grating the carrots and chopping the vegetables.
Carrots -1-2 medium
Ripe red & juicy tomatoes – 2
Red Onion - 1
Green chillies -1-2
Curry leaves – A sprig
Salt as per taste
Vegetable cooking oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Asafetida – a pinch
1½ tablespoons lemon juice
Wash, Peel and Grate the carrots, Chop the Tomatoes into square chunks, Chop the onions.
Now in a large bowl, put in all the vegetables, add salt as per taste and toss it all well. Now in a small pan, Take one tablespoon of cooking oil, Add the mustard seeds, when the mustard seeds start to splutter, add a pinch of asafetida and the curry leaves, just fry a bit and pour this into the salad. Toss again so that everything mixes well. Add some lemon juice, toss and serve with hot chappatis.
