Kosambari is mostly prepared in South India. Occasionally you may hear someone call it koshambari. Don’t think too far when you hear that—It is a type of simple salad. In Marathi, all salads are collectively called koshmbir.

Oh well! That is enough introduction on salads, so let’s now get to know what kosambari exactly is. Kosambari is a kind of salad that is made of vegetables and split green gram.

kosambari is served raw, which means that the nutrients from carrots, cucumber, and lentils remain intact. The vegetables used in this recipe are rich in fiber and help reduce weight. The salad as a whole has negligible amounts of cholesterol, because very little oil is required for the tempering.
