It is very easy to make & simple.Just grate fresh carrot,mix it with sliced onion,green chili and fresh coconut.Adjust salt and pepper together with lime juice.You’ll have a delicious Sri Lankan style carrot salad/carrot sambal.
This is one of favourite dishes at our home.As it is healthy and also tasty,I frequently make this salad.This time,I used some lettuce, cherry tomatoes & grapes to garnish this salad.
Here is the recipe for carrot sambal/Carrot salad.
Ingredients (For 2-3 servings)
For the salad
1 large size carrot
1-2 green chilies sliced
1 onion sliced
Salt & pepper according to taste
Juice of a half lime or according to taste
½ cup of fresh grated coconut.
Few cherry tomatoes (can use tomato slices instead)
Wash, peel & grate carrot.
It is better to mix the salad just before the meal.
Add green chilies, sliced onion, salt, pepper & grated coconut to it.
Add the lime juice & mix well.
Check for salt & pepper & adjust if required.
As this is Christmas season, I thought of garnishing it with Christmas theme. I used a leaf of lettuce as a Christmas tree on the middle of the dish.
Oops this was a quick dish during last weekend. Do you see the Christmas tree? 🙂
Anyway this is a suitable dish for any festive Sri Lankan lunch or when few guests visit home. (With other dishes)
So I am going to share this with few ongoing events.
