Koshimbir - Maharashtrian salad

Koshimbir is a vegetable salad which forms a prominent place in maharashtrian thali.  This salad which has regular onions and tomatos with carrot/cucumber is dressed with curd and topped with roasted peanuts.  With not-so-curd-loving husband, I just added an small amount of hung curd to taste an traditional essence.

For making this salad, just mix the following ingredients and top them with peanut (that are deskinned and roasted) powder.

1 cup of grated carrot
1/2 cup of green gram sprouts (which has been steamed for ten minutes)
1/2 cup of onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup of tomatos, de-seeded and finely chopped
1 tbspn of hung curd
1/4 cup of finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 - 1 tsp of finely chopped, de-seeded chilly (red/green)
Salt, to taste
