Carrot Kosambri with Sprouted Green-gram

Carrot Kosambri with sprouted green-gram
Kosambri is a South Indian name for a salad and happens to be one of the easiest dishes in Indian cuisine. The word Kosambri comes mostly from the word Kosu which means vegetable in kannada. So a dish using raw vegetable is a Kosambri. This is how I have interpreted the word. Does anyone know any other explaination?  Leave me a comment and let me know. There are different ways of making Kosambri using various grams and lentils. Any festival or function in Karnataka is incomplete without one type of this on the platter.

I make this pretty often at my home. It can be a nutritious snack which can be eaten as it is or can be eaten along with Chapatis too. Here i have added sprouted green gram to make it all the more healthy.
