Me and My dad frequently visit MTR at Bangalore. The first dish they serve is grape juice and next is this carrot kosambari. Eating Raw carrot is very hard for me, this carrot salad made it easy. i love the moong dal in it and lime juice sprayed over the salad makes me crave for one more serving. so here is my favourite MTR Carrot Kosambari.

Soak the 1/4 cup Moong Dal in 1 cup of water for about 1 hour.
