Serves 4

Chopping the cilantro and chili together makes an aromatic mixture.

6 carrots, grated
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
4 sprigs fresh cilantro
1 large green chili, seeded

1. In a large bowl, mix the grated carrots with the salt, sugar, and lime juice. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.

2. In a small, dry skillet over low heat, toast the coriander seeds for 3 minutes, shaking the pan, until fragrant, taking care not to burn them.

3. Tip the seeds into a mortar and set aside to cool. Lightly crush them.

4. Chop the cilantro and chili together. Add them to the carrot mixture. Sprinkle with coriander seeds and mix well.
