Apple, Spring Onion And Carrot Salad - Spicy
Sev, Hari Pyaz Aur Gajar ka Salad
This is an easy and refreshing salad to make. Serve with either an Indian or Western style meal. Serves 4
1 cooking apples (or any other sharp apples)
2-3 spring onions (hari pyaz)*
2 medium or 1 large carrot
Salt to taste
1-2 green chillies, very finely chopped
1 tbsp. chopped coriander leave*s (optional)
1 tsp. cumin seeds, dry roasted and coarsely ground
Juice of a lime or lemon
*If you don't have spring onions, use finely chopped red onions. Coriander leaves give it a nice flavour, but I don't often add them because my husband hater them!
Wash, peel, core and grate apples. Add salt (from the measured amount) as you are grating. This will stop discolouration.
Wash, top and tail onions, leaving the fresh green leaves intact. Chop/slice finely.
Top, tail, peel and grate carrots coarsely or chop very finely.
Squeeze out all the water of the grated apples, carrots and onions. I usually drink this water.
Place onions, carrots, apples and green chillies in a bowl.
Add all other ingredients and mix. Adjust seasoning after tasting.
Keep in air tight tub and refrigerate, until needed.
