Kachumber is the Indian salad with cucumber,tomato and onion essentially.This is the basic salad recipe served mostly in any restaurant alongside any spicy meal. Cucumber,onion and tomatoes make up this salad along with optional ingredients like cilantro,lemon and finally tossed up with some lemn juice.I love this salad so much that I can have this alone as a meal :). When ever I make this I prepare a large quantity,we love this in our home.Super quick and simple to put together,very crunchy and refreshment in every spoonful,a must try recipe with any spicy Indian meal.Though it is mostly served with north Indian dishes,it absolutely tastes great even with sambar rice or any variety rice too.Try having this with dal rice,yum combo it is 🙂
