Carrot Kosumalli / Carrot Kosambhari

Kosumalli is a light carrot salad, usually served in weddings. Crunchy carrots with a lemon juice, green chillies and spiced with asafetida and mustard seeds is sure a welcome taste amongst other feasts served in the weddings.

I used some moong dal to give extra crunch. It can be served as a side or main meal.

Get Ready ( serves 2 as a side)

  • 1& 1/2 - 2 cups grated carrots
  • 2 green chillies chopped fine
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp moon dal soaked in water for 20 mins and drained ( optional)
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • pinch of asafetida
  • salt to taste
  • cilantro ( optional)

  • In a bowl add the carrots, salt, lemon juice, soaked moongdal and mix well.
  • In a kadai, add oil, do the tadka with mustard seeds, asfetida and green chilli.
  • pour it on top of the grated carrot, toss them all.
  • garnish with cilantro.

Serve cold or at room temperature.
