3C Kosambari / 3C Salad (No Onion and no Garlic )


I am back after a long hiatus. I am dedicating this post to my beloved Father in Law Shri K Sankaranarayana  whom we lost on 10th August this year. He was a  pillar of strength and to the family.He was always soft spoken and motivated us in every possible way. He always believed in giving back to the society. He has done a lot of charity work to help the under privileged.  He was a health freek and always vouched for healthy eating. I am sure he is in a better place now watching us.One of his favorite dish was SALAD.

Today is 55th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop and my contribution for today’s theme #Salad is 3 C Kosambari. Kosambari is an integral part of the festive menu in Karnataka.

Recipe for 3C Kosambari / 3C Salad:


1 Cup Split Moongdal / Split Mung Bean soaked in water for 2 hrs
1 Cup grated Carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped Capsicum
1 Cup finely chopped Cucumber

Salt to taste

For tadka:
1/2 tsp channa dal
1 tsp urad dal
1/4 tsp mustard
A generous pinch of hing
Green chilli cut or slit
Few Curry leaves
Coriander chopped


Drain the water from the moong dal and keep it aside.Once the water is fully drained take a bowl and mix moong dal and grated carrots ,chopped cucumber and  bell pepper.

Take the same wok.Add a few drops of oil.Put channa dal and urad dal.Once they turn a little brown add mustard and hing.Then add the chilli ,coriander and curry leaves.Saute for 2 secs.The tadka is done.
Mix the tadka with the moong dal and veggies.Add salt to taste just before serving.
