Important Notes**

a. Once you chopped the veggies keep it aside don't add spices in it, before serving  just add spices and juice, if we add earlier spices and juices in salad..sometimes it becomes bitter and soggy. 

b. You can add any veggies of your choice ooty carrots, red carrots, red and yellow bell pepper,boiled chickpeas, boiled corn anything which you like the combination most.
