Fruit Kosmalli / Lentil Fruit Salad In 15 Minutes

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Thursday, December 15, 2011 | 11:40 AM

I am sure most of you are aware of kosmalli. Carrot kosmalli is very popular in south Indian cuisine. The fruit kosmalli  is something that I tried in the last minute and happened to liked it a lot. I just finished a bowl of this salad for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the lightness and freshness of it that I decided to blog about it. I personally think that simple side dishes get more appreciation and therefore enhances the meal served. Especially when you have last minute guests, this is a perfect salad to prepare and serve with any kind of food in a jiffy. I am a big fan of blending salty, spicy and sweet ingredients in salads. So the next time if you are wondering how to make any meal special, try this one and you will start making it more often. My daughter tells me that the photos look perfect for the holidays.
