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
