This is a very simple and easy Carrot Salad from Sri Lanka. It takes few minutes to prepare. I usually add this carrot salad to our meal due to its easiness & health factors. To steam carrot, I use the steam tray of the rice cooker, so once the rice is cooked, carrot is ready to go to the salad. Boiled carrot can be used instead of steamed carrot. But steaming saves its nutrients.
