Mixed Vegetable Salad with Sesame Seed Recipe

Mixed Vegetable Salad with Sesame Seed Recipe

(Thanatsone)

Ingredients :

3 cups sliced vegetables (different types of combinations)

1/2 cup peanut oil

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/2 teaspoon turmeric, ground

3 onions, sliced finely

4 cloves garlic, sliced finely

3 tablespoons sesame seeds

2 tablespoons white vinegar

Salt to taste

 

Method :

Cut the different types of vegetables into strips of bite-size pieces and boil for only 1 or 2 minutes in mildly salted water. Just boil until tender to keep the crisp. Drain and run cold water over the vegetables in a colander to stop the cooking. Drain again.

Heat the peanut and sesame oils in a small deep wok. Add turmeric, garlic, onions and fry over medium heat, stirring all the time until onions and garlic start to brown. Remove wok from heat and continue stirring until they are brown and crisp. When cool, pour a little of this oil over the vegetables. Add onions and garlic and toss lightly to mix evenly, add extra salt and vinegar according to taste. In a dry pan roast the sesame seeds over medium heat until golden brown. Ensure that it does not burn. Turn on to a plate to cool. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the vegetables. Serve as an accompaniment to steamed white rice and curry.
