Water Chestnut Salad as the name suggests is prepared using Water Chestnuts, which are very rare to find in South India. When I did find them, prepared this salad as an accompaniment with Phulkas. Water Chestnuts adds a nice crunch to the salad. Water Chestnuts are available only during November and December.
