Jicama 'N Carrot Salad

Even though I like experimenting with new vegetables, I never thought of trying out anything with Jicama till now, as it didn't look interesting to me. But the last time when we were at the super market Aishwarya insisted on buying this, saying 'you always ask me to try out new things, so why are you not trying this'. So I had to buy this as I had to set an example by practicing what I preach. But it stayed there untouched for a few days as I couldn't make myself use it. After a few reminders from Aishwarya, I finally made this salad. And it proved to be a pleasant surprise.
This is basically a carrots and raisins salad, I just added  jicama also into it. So for those of you who cannot get hold of jicama, it tastes as good with just carrots and raisins in it. I got this simple yet yummy salad recipe from my hubby's aunt.
Ingredients:
Jicama-sliced 2 cups
Carrots-sliced 1 cup
Raisin-1 cup
Ginger-2" piece
Garlic-1 clove
Green chili-1
Sugar-1 1/2tsp
Salt-as required
Vinegar-2tbs
Pepper 1tsp
Method:
Slice all the fresh ingredients except chilli into little match stick size. Slice chilli as thin as possible. Mix all the ingredients together.
