Carrot Salad - Seema Style

When i was visiting Poona the last time, i saw a hodge podge of grated carrots on the dining table which didn't look the least appetizing... while waiting for the other veggie that was being heated, i took an experimental bite of the carrot thingie and was totally taken aback by how extremely tasty it was! I quickly got Seema to teach me and here is the recipe:

You will need:

3 big carrots, grated
a handful of peanuts roasted and powdered (Just add a few drops of oil to a pan and saute the peanuts on a very low flame or simply bake them in an oven at 200, then put them in a mixie and whirrr to a coarse powder)
1 big tomato chopped to medium chunky size

Throughly mix all these things together

For the tadka:

Put some (2 tablespoonsish) oil in a pan and heat, add a slit green chilly (this is optional, i dont do it), a few (5-8) curry leaves, a teaspoon of whole jeera, a sprinkling of rai (mustard seeds), a pinch of turmeric and red chilly powder (the chilly powder is also optional, i dont add it), let everything crackle and pop for a bit (dont burn it)

and then put this whole tadka into the carrot mixture and mix it up... Serve with hot rotis or as a salad with dal and rice... Dont forget to add lots of love to it!

It tastes unbelievably good, and is one of the simplest things to make...

I am pretty sure you can add whatever you wish to it and it will still taste grand!

Maybe some boiled green peas, or cooked mushrooms, or add a bit of garlic to the tadka or ginger paste... use your imagination :)

Have it for Lunch or Dinner today!
