Kosambari means salad and basically it's a medley of  all fresh vegs or mix of finely chopped vegetables and lentils , Today I am posting my favourite version of kosambari which my mom used to prepare this during auspicious occasion  of Ram Navami this along with jaggary panak which a gingery based traditional drink which you will find in every household during summer and when it is served chilled its absolutely amazing thirst quencher especially on a hot sunny day so this paired with this salad was truly a combination when one can't miss , I have such a fond childhood memories that while typing down the recipe I automatically got teleported down the memory lane coming to the recipe of this humble salad , here it goes :D


1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber

1/4 cup yellow mung dal soaked for 2 hrs

1 small carrot grated

3 tbsp grated coconut 

1 green chilli finely minced

2 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped

dash of a lime 

salt to taste

For tempering 

1 tbsp oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

generous pinch of hing / Asafoetida


  • In a mixing bowl add in soaked yellow mung dal ( wash soak for couple of hours , rinse thoroughly , discard all the extra water) , cucumber, grated carrot, green chillies, coriander leaves , salt to taste and dash of lemon , grated coconut mix well. 
  • In pan add oil add mustard seeds, when it starts to splutter add in generous pinch of hing and pour this on the mix. 
  • Serve with Rice and dal as a salad or you can enjoy it just like that with a smile on your face, I am sure though simple it is going to satiate your taste buds :D
