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.

Iceberg lettuce- 1/4
Roasted peanuts- 1 fistful
Lime juice- as needed
