What is Kachumber?
Indian Kachumber Salad is a traditional indian salad. It is a simple chopped salad that is part of Indian cuisine.
It has become more popular recently after Dishoom shared their recipe via their book and online.
It consists of fresh chopped salad ingredients such as cucumber, tomatoes and onions.
It sometimes includes chilli and well as other ground spices and lemon juice.
It is served alongside most Indian meals and can also be added to wraps, tacos or eaten alongside most main meals.
Kachumber Salad is also delicious served with papadums and dips and is often served that way in restaurants.
My version is made up of diced cucumber, tomato, red onions, green chilli, mint, coriander and has a dressing of salt, pepper, lemon and cumin.
That being said, this is a recipe that you can chop and change as you like.
It can be made with Yoghurt too. Here is an Onion Raita I make often.
