ಸೋರೆಕಾಯಿ ರೈತ

I am on a raw food diet and trying to reduce some extra calories. Hence, was planning for an oil free diet and this is one of them.

Bottle guard salad is one of my all time fav which can be eaten with chapati or Just like that :)

Ingredients:
Bottle guard - 1/2 cup (Grated)
Fresh grated Coconut  - 3 tbl spn
Curd / Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves - 2 tspn (Finely chopped)
Pomogranate seeds - 3 tbl spn (Optional)
Salt to taste

For tempering (Optional)
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tspn
Urad Dal - 1/4 tspn
Hing a pinch
Green chilles - 1 (Finely chopped)
Curry leaves - 3- 4 leaves
Oil - 1 tspn .

Method:
1) Mix the grated bottle guard and coconut with yogurt and required amount of salt.
2) Garnish with Coriander leaves
3) For tempering, take a small pan, add oil, and once it is hot, add Mustard seeds and urad dal.
4) Once they splutter, add green chillies, curry leaves and hing and pour this mixture over the Bottle guard salad.

Note: I did not temper the salad, as I am going oil free in my salad. :)
