A simple no-cook salad from Maharajtra in Western India.
A great way to enjoy a beetroot salad

1lb of peeled grated beetroot
1/2 cup peanuts and/or cashews roughly crushed
1/2 cup onion finely chopped
5 springs Coriander finely chopped,
(I used Osaka Mustard greens for extra heat)
1 Tsp roasted cumin powder
Green Chilies, finely chopped to taste
Lemon or Lime juice to taste
Salt to taste

If it is available, a little coconut milk can be nice to turn the chilies into a paste.

Just throw in a bowl and mix.

If you are grating/shredding the beetroot by hand, don't wear anything you don't mind losing, this is one recipe that men have a right to wear an apron for

Beets are very healthy. A lot of recipes ask that you add sugar, but small beets are very sweet.

The beets and onions have a lovely crunch to them.
Add the chopped onions to the salad only when serving, otherwise the salad loses its freshness.

Its also best served a little chilled, so stick in the fridge for about an hour before serving.
