  • 2 medium roma tomato de seeded (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small onion (about ½ cup)
  • 1 green chili finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon roasted cumin (jeera) powder
  • salt and black peper adjust to taste
  • juice of ½ lime
  • ¼ cup coriander leaves finely chopped


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the diced cucumber, onions, tomatoes, green chili, coriander leaves, roasted cumin powder, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Toss everything well!
  • Serve Immediately or place in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving.


Tips & Variations

  • To reduce the sharpness of raw onion flavor, soak chopped onion in water for 15 minutes, drain, and then use it.
  • You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of freshly chopped mint.
  • Add vinegar to taste instead of lime juice.
  • You can also add extra vegetables of your choice.
  • This salad tastes best when freshly made but leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container overnight and consumed the next day.
