Cabbage-Carrot Kosambari

I always thought I would not enjoy eating raw cabbage. That has changed when I tried a kosambari Vijay made last weekend with cabbage and carrots. I was surprised by how much I liked the combination. It is a simple recipe with barely there India-Inspired dressing. Vijay’s curried coleslaw can be prepared hurriedly, looks festive enough for a party and tastes wonderful. Thanks to this treasured trifecta, now, I think cabbage is one of the most versatile and underrated salad ingredients. This changed thought opens up so many cabbage combinations, which I can’t wait to try in future.

    Lovely combination, and so healthy. I do make coleslaw similar way as well but instead of mayo make it with yogurt.

    Looks good. I usually make spicy version of it. Just add raw chopped chilies (no honey) and add tadka.Yummy!

    I also have this mental block abt eating raw cabbage, so I always steam it for salads. Your kosambri looks good Indira.
