Kochumber


This is quick refreshing salad made with crisp cucumbers, firm tomatoes, crunchy onions and with a squirt of lime juice.


Every great Indian meal is always accompanied by this simple condiment or relish. The flavors in the salad marry well and gives a flavor burst in your mouth. This can be served along a meal and every bite of it gives the refreshing satisfaction of a great meal. This has no oil, high in fiber, and is a very healthy salad. This can be prepared in 10 minutes. Also, during summer, this salad can become a meal by itself. The cool refreshing taste gives a boost during hot summer days and at the same time gives great nourishment. This is often made salad in our home. Whether we have roti or rice, we would have this.




In Srivalli's Blogging Marathon, we blog for 3 days a week and 4 weeks a month with different themes. For this week, I had chosen Indian Condiments. This is my third post for the same event and I have already shared Cilantro Pachadi / Raita and Vegan Nut Free Zucchini Pesto / Zucchini Thogayal.


I am linking this to Wonderful Wednesday, Happiness is Homemade, and Full Plate Thursday. I am also linking this to Souper Sundays by Deb of Kahakai Kitchen. Check her page if you would like to participate in Souper Sundays.


Update: This was featured on Full Plate Thursday, 535. Thanks, Helen.
