Kosambari




how to make kosambari


A very traditional, south Indian vegetarian side dish is kosambari.  Its recipe is among the main cucumber salad recipes.  Split green grams, coriander leaves, coconut gratings, chilies, lemon juice and, of course, cucumber are the key ingredients in the kosambari recipe.  Without any thoughts, I can say this salad brings a tasty and healthy dimension to a lunch.  Kosambari can also be eaten as a healthy snack.

Here is the kosambari recipe made with chana dal, instead of moong dal.





Servings: Three-four


1.
Moong dal (mung / split green gram) 1/4 cup
2. Cucumber 1
3. Coconut gratings 1 tablespoon
4. Green chili 1
5. Lemon juice to taste
6. Salt to taste
7. Chopped coriander leaves 1/2 tablespoon

TIPS
How to make  kosambari?
1.
After washing and draining the moong dal, instead of soaking it in water, add chopped cucumber.  Moong dal will soak in the cucumber juice.  This method prevents the loss of vitamins from the mung.
2. You can mix the kosambari with a seasoning made from little oil, hing (asafoetida) and curry leaves to try a different variety of kosambari.
