Adding raw food or salads is very good for our health. This carrot thoran salad is an innovative recipe by me :). We we make Kerala style thoran with the same recipe so I thought why can’t we eat it raw rather than killing nutrients while heating up the carrot.

This crunchy carrot salad is healthy and tasty too. It can be consumed as it is or as a side dish for bread, roti, rice, non veg etc. If you want to cook it you can cook it and make it as a thoran too.
