I had this yummy salad at a friends the other day for lunch, it tasted divine! It was quick and easy, so I thought I would share my version.

For 3-4  people

5 medium carrots - grated, put aside
1/2 medium beetroot - again grated ( I went all out and used a whole one, hence the very red colour) you can use as much or as little as you want
1 can drained chickpeas
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup dry roasted cashews
handful of pine nuts
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin
1 Tbls olive oil

In a large frying pan, heat oil and add the spices, then add the chickpeas and all the nuts, fry off on a high heat for 3-5 min. Remove put aside to cool.
Just before serving toss the carrots and chickpea mixture and then add the grated beets, serve as a side with a meat dish or with some hot focaccia as a light lunch


Till next time,
