Carrot and Sweet corn Salad

Carrot and sweet corn salad

We love to eat one raw vegetable in our regular meal. And today we had carrot and sweet corn salad.

Fresh carrot Grated - 1 cup
Fresh grated coconut - 3 - 4 tbl. spn
Sweet Corn - 1/4 cup (I used frozen corn)
Fresh coriander leaves - 2 tspn
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 .

1) Mix the grated carrot, coconut  and sweet corn with 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. :)
