Carrot cabbage salad/raitha/Koshimbir

      After ranting in each of my posts on salads about including it in our daily menu, I have finally managed to do so successfully to some extent. So this is one method which I have tried with various vegetables and we have been liking it a lot.

       I had had this cabbage koshimbir for the first time in a get together at a friend’s place who is a Maharashtrian. I had promptly taken the recipe that time though I took ages to make it.The important inclusion in this are the peanuts which gives a nice nutty taste to the salad. Peanuts for the Maharashtrians is like coconut for the southies. I am quite fond of it and try to make a small batch of powdered peanuts and store it in air tight container. So its quite easy to make this kind of salads or I occasionally add them in some dry curries too..tastes great!!

       So I do hope you try this kind of raitha to go with some variety rice for a change.
