ABOUT Beetroot Kosambari... RECIPE

This is a very famous raw salad recipe from the state of Karnataka. It is a light yet filling salad that can be eaten on it's own too with a glass of neer mor or South Indian buttermilk. The crunch from the cucumber, the lovely taste of coconut, the tangy flavor of lemon perfectly balances the earthy lentils that are added.
