Carrot Salad With Mustard Seeds

Cuisine: Indian
Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients

4 teaspoons 20mlCarrots - peeled and grated (large)
2 tablespoons 30mlVegetable oil
2 teaspoons 10mlBlack mustard seeds
  Half a lemon - juice of
  (or a lime for something really special)
  Salt and freshly ground pepper - to taste

Recipe Instructions

A fresh tasting salad which goes well with some of the richer main dishes. The mustard seeds take on a nutty taste when heated and combine with the lemon juice give a lovely balance of tastes. This is my version of a Madhur Jaffrey recipe.

1. Put the grated carrots into a serving dish.

2. Heat the oil in a small pan over a moderate heat.

3. Add the mustard seeds and cook until they begin to pop out of the pan (no longer or they will become bitter).

4. Pour the oil and mustard seeds over the carrots. Stir to mix.

5. Sprinkle salt and black pepper over the carrots and pour on the lemon juice. Stir to mix.

6. That's it!
