Koshimbir

Koshimbir is another name for a salad .This Koshimbir belongs to Udupi Cuisine . The salad is high in  protein and has a mix of raw lentils and veggies .

The lentil used in this Koshimbir is yellow moong daal which needs to be soaked for a few hours . The lentil should be soft yet crunchy . While making raw lentil salads one should make sure that you wash the lentils well a couple of times so that there is no raw after flavor . If it has been washed well and then soaked you just have to drain the excess water .

Once you drain the water leave it in the sieve for a while so that there’s no moisture . You can add the rest of the ingredients and seasonings . Chill the salad if you wish too , but remember cling wrap the bowl before putting it in the refrigerator .

I had prepared this Koshimbir for the Protein Rich Udupi Thali and we had enjoyed it thoroughly and my sincere thanks to PJ for helping me with this Thali .

This is my Day2 post under the theme Summer Salads.

    1. Ritu, you could if you are so hesitant, but trust me give it a try and I can assure you that it does not give a raw taste, just follow the tips.

  1. Today in the morning to make this salad and post. I love this moong dal salad a lot. And looking at the thali I almost fainted. I wish to be your neighbor one day.

  2. When I first tasted it, I really didn’t like the taste. But once I started liking it, then no stopping. I love this salad so much. It is perfectly healthy, nutritious and easy to prepare. That udupi thali looks amazing..
