Kosambari or Kosumalli is a protein rich salad for adults and kids. The combination of lentils and vegetables make it a healthy snack and ideal for weight watchers. It is primarily served during festive and wedding meals as an accompaniment. You can get creative by adding pomegranate seeds and sweet corn for extra crunch and taste.


1 cup moong dal (soaked in water for 30 minutes)
1 /2 cup boiled sweet corn (optional)
¼ cup grated carrot
¼ cup cucumber finely chopped
¼ pomegranate seeds (optional)
2 tsp fresh coconut grated
1 small green chilli (finely chopped)
1 tsp lemon juice
Salt to taste
Few sprigs of coriander for garnish

For tadka

1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
Few curry leaves


Take green chilli, coconut and coriander in a mixer and blend to get a coarse paste.

Add this paste the other ingredients of the salad and keep aside. 

Heat oil for tadka and add mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add this to the salad and garnish with coriander leaves.

You can also serve this salad chilled.
