Carrot, Daikon and Sesame Salad - Gajar, Mooli and Til Kachumbar

Salads are not only for summers. Whatever the weather, Salads always get a warm welcome on our table and they get the opportunity to brighten up our meals. We can devour salads at lunch, dinner or sometimes as snacks too. It could be warm or cold, cooked or raw, it could be light and simple or it could be one pot meal salad..and it could be totally leaf free too , in a nut shell we are a salad loving family.

Salad don't have to be green, there are an abundance of ingredients available in our kitchen to make flavoursome , healthy and filling salads. In winter there are plenty of root vegetables available and all year round grains, nuts and seeds make salads more inviting.

We load this salad on our plates as if it's a main. It's divinely simple to prepare but utterly delicious to eat.
