Tangy Tempered Carrot Salad

This is one of the regulars that my taijimakes. Simple, understated and yet very tasty. And the leftovers (if any) perform very well in a sandwich too. Here is the recipe:Ingredients:
3 carrots – grated
juice of 1 lemon
rock salt to taste
salt to taste
2 tsp mustard seeds
5-6 tbsp coriander leaves
1 tbsp oilMethod:

  • Mix together carrots, lemon juice, rock salt, salt and coriander leaves. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds. As they start to flutter, reduce heat to minimum and let the mustard seeds burn a little for a minute. When the burn smell of mustard starts coming turn off the heat.
  • Add the carrot mix to the wok. Mix well, cover and set aside to cool.
  • When the mixture cools, refrigerate for half an hour. Serve cold.
