COLESLAW WITH CREAMY MASALA DRESSING

Indian and Malay food are known for their fiery but flavoursome curries turned down by a cooling sambal.

This coleslaw can be seen as a type of a sambal served in small portions or as a proper salad where everybody help themselves from a large serving platter.

The dressing is creamy, almost like a thin mayonnaise, flavoured with a hint of curry, flavoursome, but not hot.

If you want it more hot, add 1 bag of Carmien Revive green rooibos (with ginger & chilli).
