Carrot-Tomato Salad

I love this salad.  VK makes this for me ever so often.  I can eat a huge bowl of it anytime.  You can go berserk with the garnishing, but I generally use only raisins so that I do not feel guilty about the huge amounts that I devour.


Carrots - 4 - use fresh, juicy carrots for best results - grated
Tomatoes - 2 large - finely diced
Green chilies - 2 nos - finely diced - you can use any other spice if you do not like to bite into these
Raisins - soak and add 
Oil for seasoning - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Lime juice - 1-2 tsp
Salt to taste

Toss grated carrot, diced tomatoes, super fine diced green chilies with salt
Add soaked raisins

Seasoning
Heat the oil, add mustard seeds, allow to splutter and add to the grated carrot mixture

Add lime juice
Garnish with coriander leaves

And if you wish with more nuts
Simple and tasty.  Eat as much as you wish.

  6. The salad looks yum...I have a love and hate relationship with salads....some days I love them and eat so much that I go off them and then I come back :-) You do not temper the mustard seeds, just add them raw? That is cool, I have never had un-tempered mustard seeds :-)
