Lankan Salad

BM # 17   Day 1

On our visit to Sri Lanka, Nancy the house maid prepared some wonderful Lankan meals…but unfortunately I never bothered to write the recipes.Among all recipes this salad is the only recipe that I remember and have been following since the past 15 years.It's a wonderful filling salad with a crunch of peanuts.

1cup............... shredded cabbage
1tsp................. oil
½ tsp ...............mustard seeds
2tsp................. roasted / fried peanuts
1........................green chilly , chopped
¼...................... cup grated coconut
Few curry leaves
Coriander leaves
Salt to taste
Lemon juice
Heat oil.
Add mustard, green chilly, curry leaves and peanuts.
Add cabbage and salt.
Saute’ on full flame for 2-3 mins.
Remove and cool.
Add lemon juice, coconut and coriander.
Mix well. Chill and serve.



Light, crunchy this salad is a dieter’s delight.
