Crunchy Salad #FoodieExtravaganza

Prepare this simple, fresh and refreshing crunchy beetroot and radish salad today! It's quick and easy to prepare, filling too.

Since this is National Salad month our Host Camilla asked us to celebrate all things salad. Green salads, pasta salads, potato salads. This theme was absolutely right for this month.. since the heat in India is scorching, having salads more in meals is refreshing and light. Thanks Camilla for hosting this event and choosing this theme.

1 Boiled Beetroot - chopped
1 Radish - Grated

1 Small Tomato - chopped
A Juice of a Lemon
1 Tablespoon Grated Coconut
1 Tablespoon Coriander leaves - finely chopped
2 Tablespoons Peanuts - roasted and coarsely ground
½ Teaspoon Pepper powder
½ Teaspoon Salt

For the tadka
1 Teaspoon Sesame oil
½ Teaspoon Mustard seeds
½ Teaspoon Urad dal
¼ Teaspoon Chana Dal
A sprig Curry leaves


In a saucepan, heat the oil add the mustard seeds, when they crackle, add the urad and chana dal and brown it lightly , add curry leaves and sauté lightly. Cool it. Add the  beetroot and tomato. 
Mix in the juice of one lemon, the grated coconut, salt, pepper powder, and the peanuts. Nicely stir all the ingredients. In a  plate arrange the radish and then place the beetroot on top, sprinkle so more peanuts and cover this with a cling film and chill it in the refrigerator . Enjoy this  salad chilled.
