Beetroot Carrot Salad – a delicious salad of beetroot and carrot with the crunchiness of peanuts.
Salads have the reputation of being boring. But in reality, salads can be as delicious and satisfying as any other meal. Lately I have been following the satvik diet as recommended by “Satvik Movement”. They recommend having grain meal only once a day. So inevitably, a healthy salad or soup is part of my daily diet. Of late, I have been experimenting with quite a few salad /soup recipes. This beetroot carrot salad is a result of one such experiment. This salad with beetroot, carrot, peanuts and coconut makes for a wholesome and satisfying meal.
Here’s the recipe for Beetroot Carrot Salad:
2 cups grated beetroots
1 ½ cups grated carrots
1/3 cup roasted peanut powder (coarse powder)
¼ cup fresh coconut, grated
¼ cup fresh coriander leaves, chopped
1 small green chilly, chopped (optional)
2 tbsp lemon juice
rock salt as per taste
Grated coconut and chopped coriander leaves for garnishing
In a mixing bowl, add grated beetroots, grated carrots, peanut powder, grated coconut, chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chilly, lemon juice and rock salt. Give a good mix. Serve immediately.
For making roasted peanut powder, heat a pan and add raw peanuts. Saute on low flame till they change colour and turn aromatic. Allow them to cool. Deskin the peanuts. Transfer the peanuts to a mixer jar. Run the mixer on pulse mode just for a second or two and make coarse powder.
