Carrot Salad

Carrot Salad is good accompaniment to many curry dishes. As a child, a very popular salad in my home was made with carrots, sometimes combined with cucumber, radish or lettuce. The following recipe is based on the carrot salad of my childhood days. It is almost always served with Biryani by


  • 3 fresh carrots
  • half finely sliced onion
  • 2 sprigs of shallots (optional>
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoonful of vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 small green chili, finely sliced (optional)


  • Grate Carrots
  • Mix all ingredients
  • Serve on a platter. You may add cucumber, raisins, radish or lettuce as well
