This salad is a wonderful way to get some carrots (vitamin A) into the system! When I read 'curry leaves' in the ingredients, I just remembered that the agricultural department has banned the entry of curry leaves into the U.S ( well..that is what my desi-store guy had told me).

Oh I see...that is the reason why I am not getting the curry leaves from past two weeks. I can't even imagine chutney or dal without curry leaves :(
