The day I left to India, I had prepared this Beetroot salad – Beetroot Kosambari as we call it at home. I prepared this to go as a side with roti and gutti vankayakura | enne badanekai (stuffed brinjal curry). Kosambaris are an integral part of a meal in many parts of Karnataka and Maharashtra. Kosambari is a salad prepared with soaked moong dal , coconut, coriander leaves and raw veggies like carrot, radish and or cucumber. Earlier I had posted a radish salad | mullangi kosambari which is very much liked now in my home.
Apart from that I sometimes also prepare kosambari (salad) with beetroot for a change. This Beetroot salad will be liked by most since soaked lentils and fresh coconut add great taste. Raw food lovers will surely like this. Since I was in a hurry that day I did not add coconut, but it definitely enhances the taste.
