This is a typical Indian salad which is very simple to prepare and also a very healthy dish. This salad can be served with rice or can be taken as such. It is low in fat, so can be taken by those who want to reduce weight. Children love this very much. Since my children like the crunchy taste of capsicums very much, I have added it. In traditional recipe capsicum is not added. Today we will learn to make Karnataka special Kosambari salad.
