Moogadali- Carrot Kosambari (Split Green gram- Carrot Salad)

Moogadali- Carrot Kosambari  is a simple, healthy salad. I got this recipe from my MIL. I had this salad in my relative's house during my recent trip to India. Till then I was not a fan of raw lentil in my salad. This recipe completely changed my taste buds :-) 

  • Carrot, medium sized- 3
  • Moongdal (Split skinless green gram) - 1/4 cup
  • Onion, chopped- 2-3 Tbsp (optional)
  • Grated Coconut, fresh/frozen - 3-4 Tbsp
  • Green Chillies, chopped- 1-2
  • Cilantro/Coriander leaves- 4-5 sprigs
  • Lemon- juice from half of a lemon (adjust accordingly)
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil - 1-2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves - 3-4


Wash and soak moongdal for one hour.

Meanwhile grate the cleaned carrot. Chop cilantro, green chillies and onion.

Now drain the water in which moongdal was soaking. In a mixing bowl, add the soaked (and drained) moongdal, grated carrot, chopped onion, grated coconut, chopped green chillies, chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt. Mix well. 

For seasoning- Heat oil and add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering add curry leaves and turn off the heat. Add this to the carrot- moongdal mixture. Mix well. 
Moogadali-Carrot Kosambari is ready!!

Serve it for lunch or dinner. Above measurement serves 2-3 people.
