Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Here is my entry for the event  "Cook and Click" - 2 for Recipe of "COOK AND CLICK" : MIXED VEGETABLE SAMBAL :

In the book, they have not give the salt to add. I tried without salt also. But it tasted very bland so added little salt to taste. The taste was very good as a starter. 
Try it and send the clicks to my this event.

Keep Smiling,

Tried and tasted by Nivedita 
Hi All,
Here is my second recipe for the event   "Cook and Click" . This is for August 21st to August 31st.
I think my first recipe was not so good for you all to try it. So trying to give you all a simple but healthy and tasty recipe to prepare and click the photo to send it to my event.
Read the rules in above link for participating in this event.
Event round up for August 10 till August 20 will be posted in 2 days.
I am going to share the recipe for Sambals.
SAMBALS are amongst the many accompaniments you will find with an Asian meal. It is a very common dish in most of the Asian countries.
sambal is a chili based sauce which is normally used as a condiment. Sambals are popular in IndonesiaMalaysiaSingapore, the southern Philippines and Sri Lanka, as well as in the Netherlands and in Suriname through Indonesian influence. It is typically made from a variety of peppers, although chili peppers are the most common. Read  here for more.
This is also from the same book "INDIAN COOKERY" by "Bay books gallery collections"
Giving you two recipes for Sambal :

Oil - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1 large, finely chopped
Garlic - 1 clove, chopped
Green chillies - 2, finely chopped and seeds removed
Ground ginger - 1/2 tsp
Ground Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Ground turmeric - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 pinch

1. Heat oil in a frying pan, sauté onion until tender.
2. Add remaining ingredients, stir over low heat for 2 minutes.
Sambal Dressing is ready.

Serves 2

Now, the second one,

Carrot - 1, finely diced
Shelled Peas - 1/4 cup
Green beans - 30 gm, cut into 1 cm length
Potato - 1, finely diced
Green chilly - 1 finely chopped
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Desiccated coconut - 2 tbsp

1. Cook vegetables in boiling water until tender, drain.
2. Add chilly, lemon juice and oil, stir until combined
3. Serve sprinkled with desiccated coconut.
