from www.npr.org: "A traditional South Indian recipe, red or orange beets can be substituted for carrots for a variation of this slaw. This salad packs a punch with its tartness from the sharp lime and the heat from the jalapenos. This is a colorful, pretty slaw. A cup of grated mango can be substituted for the lime." asafetida powder (also known as hing) is available at any Indian grocer

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan.
  2. Add the mustard and cumin seeds and cover with a splatter shield. When the seeds start popping, add the asafetida powder; when the powder starts to sizzle and froth, turn off the heat. This will all be done in less than 2 minutes.
  3. Add the chopped jalapeno and let it sit for a minute to flavor the hot oil.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and combine with the grated carrots, chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt; toss well.
  5. Serve cold or at room temperature.
