A simple, easy salad, and yet with great flavour. Wondering why I am writing a recipe with just 3 ingredients, hardly calling for a full length post? Well, this is no ordinary salad. It is a tasty little side piece in the cuisine of Meghalaya, accompanying the popular chicken, pork and other curries. The Khasi Black Sesame Radish Salad has to be tasted, to be appreciated. The black sesame or nei iong adds a flavour all its own.
In The Seven Sisters, Kitchen Tales from the North East, the cookbook credits the recipe to Zorampari Duncan Sanyu. There are many variants of the Radish sesame salad as you can see, if you search on the internet. However, to bring you an authentic version, I have conformed strictly to the recipe in the cookbook.
