Been in Bangalore for almost few years, I have tasted this from my neighbor aunty who commonly prepares kosambari during all festivals at their home. Navratri’s are not without kosambari at their home. Following her, I have prepared two kosambari – Carrot kosambari and Cucumber kosambari.

Kosambari is also known as Koshambari, which is a healthy vegetarian salad recipe that is very easy and simple to prepare in mintues. Got products from Sprig Online Gourmet for review and Just for a twist I have substituted Six Pepper Medley powder from Sprig Gourmet instead of Green Chillies and Rosemary Lavender Sea Salt from Sprig Gourmet instead of salt.

Lavender is my one and only favorite, the very first time tried out the flavor in food along with sea salt, absolutely delicious and more fragrant –  also a special for Navratri offering. Six Pepper Medley also had a wonderful fragnant, because of the cute little grinder over the bottle which gives out the freshly grounded powder. Give a try to this recipe…

  • Cucumber – ½ no

  • Split green gram / Paasi payaru / Mung dal – 1 cup
