Kosambari is a kind of salad which is a speciality of Karnataka. It is usually made with different kinds of sprouted beans, cucumbers and carrots. Naveen is a huge kosambari lover and I make it almost 2-3 times a week!! Here's one of the recipes. Will post more of the kosambari recipes in the days to come... Enjoi!

Carrot Kosambari Ingredients:

2 cups Fresh carrots, peeled and grated
1 cup Grated cocunut
2-3 strands Cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp Lime juice
salt to taste
For seasoning:
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1Green chilli, chopped
A pinch Hing
3-4 Curry leaves
2 tsp Oil


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl.

  2. For seasoning, heat oil and add mustard seeds.

  3. Once the seeds splutter, add the green chillis, hing and curry leaves.

  4. Add the seasoning to the other ingredients and mix well.

  5. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve as a side dish during lunch and dinner.

Update: Moong Dal Kosambari I'm updating the post and adding a picture of Moong dal kosambari . Replace carrot with split moong dal (soaked in water for 3-4 hours) and follow the same steps as carrot kosambari for Moong Dal kosambari. Enjoi!
