Beetroot salad

Today, I feel like sharing the recipe of beetroot salad. My mum used to cook the beetroot, and then simply used to give Tadka and add grated coconut. It tastes awesome, but I was really delighted when I ate the raw beet salad while attending the Isha yoga classes. The Volunteers have really prepared a sumptuous lunch. t is really delicious and healthy.

Beetroot- 1 number
Cucumber- 1/2
Iceberg lettuce- 1/4
Roasted peanuts- 1 fistful
Lime juice- as needed
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Grated Coconut -1/2 cup (optional)

For tadka
Mustard seeds, cumin seeds- 1 tsp each
Curry leaves- 6-7 number

Tadka: Heat 1 tsp oil in a small pan, sputter mustard and cumin seeds. Add curry leaves and turn off the heat.

Grate the beetroot ,cucumber. Finely chop the lettuce. Add all the veggies in a bowl, add salt and lime juice, mix well , let it stand for a while.. Now add chopped cilantro, roasted peanuts and tadka. To enhance the taste, add the grated coconut to the salad.

This Salad looks very refreshing Kamini. I make beetroot chutney which tastes equally good. These days I have fallen in love with vegetable chutneys though. Loved reading your blog. It was a gr8 experiance to learn about pranic food and different kind of energies that food can give.
