Carrots N Pomegranate Salad, Tempering Spices

This is a random post about two completely different sections of cooking. First is the Salad, I've heard that a combination of carrots and pomegranates are good for salads, tried it this time and really liked the combo! Just added a squeeze of lemon and freshly ground pepper and its ready to eat. I would recommend adding equal parts of both carrots and pomegranates for the sweet taste and crunchy carrots taste to be perfectly blended

Next is about tempering spices. I save the crushed pepper packets from the Papa Johns and use it in tempering for dishes and pasta, instead of red chillies. Trust me, it adds such a unique flavor. Made celery kootu today and tempered it with crushed peppers and crushed cumin seeds.
