Carrot and 4Cs Slaw

Carrots, and the 4Cs- cashew nuts, cilantro, curry leaves and citrus, tempered with Indian spices and seeds, and a hint of mint.


An easy and no-fuss salad, slaw or side, to jazz up that carrot, so your kid, and you, can gobble it up in a jiffy 😊 A few spices, seeds and fresh curry leaves are needed to give it a touch of India. It’s versatile, simple, tasty and nutritious. I’ll also throw in the newer phrases of these times, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.

Ingredients :

1 carrot, grated

The fresh juice of a lemon or lime

1 tbsp. chopped fresh coriander leaves

1 tbsp. chopped fresh mint

1/2 red onion, finely sliced

1-2 tbsp. cashew nut pieces

Rock salt, as per taste

For the tempering :

1 tsp. olive oil

4-5 curry leaves, julienned

1/2 tsp. cumin seeds

1/2 tsp. mustard seeds

A pinch turmeric

1/4 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. white sesame seeds

Peel and grate a carrot. Add the remaining ingredients. For the tempering, heat olive oil and add the seeds and curry leaves. When the seeds start popping, remove from heat and add paprika and turmeric. Pour over the carrot slaw. Garnish with cashew nut pieces.
