Collection: Kachumber Salads

Kachumber

Kachumber, or cachumber, is the Indian version of a chopped tomato and cucumber salad. It usually consists of freshly chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and onions with a pepper and lemon or lime dressing. It often includes fresh chilli peppers, or chilli powder can be added to the dressing. The dressing is unique to this salad, as it does not contain any oil and gives a peppery tang to the salad.

Kachumber

Kachumber is served as a side with Indian curries where the acid of the dressing and tomatoes cuts through the spicy heat of accompanying dishes. It adds a fresh, juicy, and cooling flavour and crunchy texture to the meal.

Other, but less traditional uses include as a dip with toasted pita bread or corn chips, with vadai, fritters or vegetarian burgers, in wraps, or layered with slabs of tofu that has been deep fried or steamed. You can also steam cubes of firm tofu, cut a pocket into the side of a cube, and stuff with finely chopped or shredded kachumber. Tofu can be substituted for paneer.

Chop it finely and a kachumber can be a substitute for any salsa.
