Transfer the salad into a shallow dish, sprinkle it with grated coconut and keep aside. Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in a ladle on top of the gas heat, crackle mustard seeds in it and turn off the heat. Add asafetida and pour the hot tempering over the salad. Garnish it with Tomato slices and serve at room temperature.
This high protein dish is almost a light meal in itself. It should be served either with some vegetable soup and toasts as a main dish, or as a breakfast dish with tea or coffee.
