coleslaw is a popular side dish or salad in southern US cuisine ,its usually a combination of grated or shredded raw cabbage and carrots ,and sometimes shredded apples or other fruits is added ,although there are many ways a coleslaw is prepared ,but we liked the restaurant style that is being served in many dinners in US .

Here is simple recipe for restaurant style coleslaw .I have omitted the use of mayonnaise as these are not so much easily available here .However addition of mayo enhances the flavor of this southern side dish .
Recipe Requirements
½ cup of grated carrots
½ cup grated cabbage
¾ cup of fresh curd or better if you use Yogurt
½ cup of milk
salt as per taste
1 tsp of sugar
½ tsp of powdered yellow mustard

Mix all in proportions and chill in the refrigerator .
TIP-Cool for 1hrs and serve with fish meals…..

Happy cooking friends .....
