Accidental Discovery....

Hi All, I cooked up a new simple recipe, I've called it Soothing Salad :) and am excited about sharing the recipe in my post. It happened to be an accidental discovery. There was a lone Beet snoring in my fridge from quite some time, and that was irritating me coz I didn't want to make the same old Kosambari or stir fry and that sort of dishes :-/ I just did something randomly without thinking much about the end result...at the most what would happen...S would push his share towards me....saying from me to you with lots of love ;) and I would end up eating what I prepared! like the Kannada saying goes 'Maddidunno Maharaaya'...lol which means one should face the consequences of what he/she does....lol God! am crazy to the core sometimes.

Talking about discovery....imagine we ladies feel so good about the accidental discoveries of new dishes we do in our kitchens,how would successful scientists feel?! hmmm... did u know that many useful things were actually accidently discoverd by scientists...hmmm the super-glue was an accidental discovery,the tale behind this is....once when a researcher wanted to stick two prisms for an experiment, the substance he had made to stick two prisms temporarily got stuck permanently! and here we have today in markets the super selling Super-glue which can stick just about ANYTHING! You too could share what you know on this topic :)

Let's leave it at that and move on to what I made today :) here's the recipe, it's simple but I can vouch on the deliciousness ;) and health benifit of this salad so read on....

Ingredients for the Soothing Salad:

1 Beetroot (cooked,peeled, grated)
1 Carrot ( peeled and grated)
3 lettuce (washed, roughly chopped)
4-5 whole pepper corns ( coarsely ground)
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2 tsp grated cheese (opt)
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tbsp Olive oil
1 handful peanuts (roasted, crushed)
1 cup yogurt (whisked)
2 tsp coriander leaves (finely chopped)
1 tsp lime juice
salt to taste

Method:

Take a large bowl put all the ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate for atleast for 30 minutes before serving.
Notes:
1. You can change the quantity of the salt and spices to suit your taste.
2. Dress the salad with a little grated cheese or any other dressing of your choice and enjoy the salad.
3. You could also add some spring onions to the salad.
