Kachumber (Mixed Vegetable Salad)

Kachumber is a super quick salad that goes really well with most Indian curries. The sourness of this salad cuts down the richness most of the Indian curries have, so it is a good balance. There is no fixed recipe or type of vegetables to use for this dish. You can just make it with pretty much any vegetables you like. Below is the version I usually make.

Vegetables can be cut into small or chunkier pieces. I prefer the chunkier style. Sometimes, I add lime and salt before serving, but every now and then, I just serve lime wedges on the side with small salt bottle so that people can make it according to their taste.

    1. Salads can be really tasty. All that lettuce topped with your favorite dressing and sprinkled with other toppings is enough to make your mouth water.
