Kohlrabi & pomegranate salad

Bringing out the unsung hero’s of the local vegetable markets is my place of absolute joy. Nothing excites me more than picking up vegetables that are used only in traditional Indian recipes and are rarely perceived in any other manner. This is a simple salad made from Kohlrabi or as we call it in Hindi – गाँठ गोबी . This root vegetable grows across the Indian subcontinent and is jam packed with complex flavors and juiciness.


  1. Kohlrabi (turnip) 200 gms
  2. Pomegranate seeds 50 gms
  3. Mustard oil 2 tbsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Sugar 1⁄2 tbsp
  6. Lemon juice 2-3 tbsp


Julienne turnip in long strands, keep soaked in cold water. Make a dressing with mustard oil, salt, sugar and lime juice. Mix turnip, pomegranate & add dressing. Check for seasoning & serve. Garnish with micro mustard greens.
