Author Notes: No notes here... Just a variation of South Indian Kosmalli ( traditionally made with Carrots & cucumbers, one of the few salads readily accepted in the typical South Indian repertoire of vegetarian fare). Thanks Food52 for getting me to bring celery into the fold. It seems tailor made for the dish with its refreshing light Crunch.Panfusine

Makes 2 cups

  • 1 cup Celery stalks slit in half longitudinally & thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Finely diced English cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup Finely diced carrots
  • 1/2 jalapeno, deseeded & finely minced
  • 1/4-1/3 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon Canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 1/2 bunch split dehusked urad dal
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  1. Combine the celery, cucumber, carrot and jalapeno together. Season & adjust for salt.
  2. Heat the oil till it just begins to smoke and add the black mustard seeds & Urad dal. When the mustard sputters & the dal turns golden brown, add the sizzling mix to the vegetable slaw. Stir to combine and add the lemon juice. Mix well.

Thanks Sdebrango, I'm still left wondering why I had to wait for Food52 to get me going on Celery. My most memorable dish with celery was a a curry I had in Sydney, Australia waay back in 1979. A part of me is still yearning for a second helping 32 yrs later, It was a small non descript diner, they just doled it out with rice, but boy did it make an impression!

My favorite way to eat celery is raw in a salad, you always bring something creative and interesting to all of your dishes the urad dal and mustard seed make this dish incredible.

I agree, love the urad dal & mustard seed. Your memorable celery experience sounds very like my first with crème fraîche. I love your entire combination of flavors & textures.
