"Roziya" salati (Salad "Roziya")
I named this salad after my mom as she invented it:) I love the taste and a beautiful look of this salad. It is also useful and nutritious, you can use it for your hot dog, sandwich or hamburger fillings.
50 ml of vegetable oil
250 gr grated or cut in long thin strips red carrot
200 gr fresh cucumbers
1 tbsp of vinegar (I used apple, my mom uses cider one)
2-3 cloves of garlic, mashed
1 tsp of ground pepper
half a tsp of red chili powder
Salt to taste
First of prepare all of your ingredients, just to be sure you have everything under your arm. Grate or cut carrots, cut cucumber. Cucumbers must be cut in this way: halve the cucumber and quarter each piece, then again cut every piece in two.
Now heat up the oil and fry carrots on a high heat for about 2 min, then add in cucumbers. Continue frying until cucumbers are slightly soft, for about 3-4 min.
Now add in vinegar, pepper, salt and chili powder and fry for 2 min more. Take from the heat and immediately take salad to the other dish to prevent further cooking. Add in garlic and mix well. Your salad is ready! You can serve it as hot and as cold, but I prefer it to be served as cool as you can feel every flavor. Enjoy!
