Kachumber salad recipe – kachumber or kuchumber salad is a good side dish that goes well with almost any Indian dishes. Basically kachumber is onion-tomato-cucumber salad tossed with Indian spices and herbs.

I always mention about kachumber in most of the Indian recipes I post, but never had a separate post on this Indian salad.

Whenever I make Veg biryani or dal tadka or any paneer or veg based curry to go with rice or rotis, I always make kachumber or some other salad. This way I include some raw veggies in our meals.

In old time, when most families were staying in joint family then it was the norm to have a complete meal which includes rice, chapati, vegetable sabzi, Dal, salad, Curd, Pickle And Chutney. the best part about such meal was that they used to give us all the nutrition needed for our body. But now most of us stay in nuclear families and we don’t have time to make such elaborate meals everyday.

In the current time, its important that we eat raw veggies and make it a part of our diet and that’s where salads become such an important part of our meals. You can easily include cucumber, carrot, tomato, onion, lettuce, radish, bell peppers, blanched beans, boiled corn, boiled peas, Moong sprouts and alfalfa sprouts in your salads.

In this kachumber, adding green chili is optional. Only add if you are used to eating raw green chilies 🙂 however you can spice this salad with some red chili powder if not adding chilies.
