Vali Bhaji / Mayalu Pannache Koshimbir

Malabar Spinach Salad / Koshimbir 
Supriya, my fb friend had posted her mom’s recipe of Mulangi Pannache koshimbir (Raddish leaves Salad) on her page Mom’s Kitchen to Mine... I instantly felt in love with the recipe... I had lots of Vali bhaji growing in my balcony. Wanted to give it a try with Vali Baji and voila!
It was delicious. Radish leaves would taste a bit different due to the pungent peppery taste of the leaves, but enjoyed this salad too. Simple recipes are always delicious. 
I followed the recipe.. Wash the leaves thoroughly... and then cut it. Sprinkle little salt and leave the leaves for 10 minutes... wash it again and then add the other ingredients. 
I used desiccated coconut but would prefer fresh coconut.

10 to 12 medium size Malabar Spinach Leaves cut into fine strips 
1 Green Chilli chopped
1 tsp Lime juice 
Salt to taste
1 tsp Sugar
1 to 2 tbsp Fresh Coconut grated or Desiccated Coconut 
2 tbsp Roasted Peanuts crushed

Take a bowl, add the Malabar spinach leaves, green chilli, salt to taste, sugar and lime juice. Mix well. Now add the coconut and peanuts and toss well. Serve it immediately.
