Kachumber Indian Spiced Salad

I’ve always loved this simple salad when it’s been served to me with poppadoms in an Indian restaurant, so when I was planning to throw my own curry night I decided to try and make my own. It’s a beautifully fresh and crunchy salad that goes perfectly with almost any Indian dish. Recently, I’ve become rather interested in the art of curry making and how to combine the different spices to create the waves of flavours that come with any well made curry. My dad has always made fantastic indian dishes and steers clear of the shop bought curry pastes so I thought it was time that I did too! This salad is a great starting point to introducing yourself to Indian recipes and is also a great way of getting a good kick of nutritional veggies!

Ingredients

1 medium sized white onion, diced
Half a large cucumber, diced
2 medium sized tomatoes, diced with the seeds removed
1/2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
2 tsp lemon juice
½ tsp roasted cumin powder

Method

After chopping all of the vegetables up, throw them into a bowl together and mix well. Then add in the cumin, coriander, lemon juice and salt and mix well until the vegetables are nicely coated. Taste to check the seasoning and if you like add some more lemon juice or salt!
