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.
