I still remember my parents insisting on having salads in every meal. I must confess, I was a really picky eater then. Apart from cucumber salad, anything else didn’t go down my throat at all. It was as if I had a sieve in my food pipe which didn’t allow the salads to pass ! I can’t even imagine how my Mom put up with me.
After growing up and understanding nutrition and its importance for general well-being , I started ingesting all veggies and salads. Over the period I’ve developed a liking for them……and now every meal in our home always has salads / koshimbir.
There are various salad recipes in maharashtrian cuisine that are flavorful, healthy n easy to make! Most of the recipes bring out the natural flavors of the raw veggies used , with light dressings of curd or lemon juice.
Today I’ll be sharing the recipe of Cucumber salad / raita / dip (Maharashtrian style). The surprise ingredient being peanuts!
