Kachumber Salad

Kachumber – Quick, easy and a great side dish for your next curry evening.


Kachumber is a popular salad at many Indian restaurants. Sometimes it’s on the menu but often it’s simply used to garnish dishes.

Use the freshest ingredients you can find. Fresh makes all the difference when you’re making kachumber!

Kachumber salad makes a nice side dish as it doesn’t compete with the other dishes served. It’s colourful and crisp which and really helps bring the meal together.

Make this kachumber salad recipe your own.

Like most Indian salad recipes, it is a very good idea to taste as you go. We all have different taste preferences so tasting along the way will make sure your kachumber is the best it can be.

Feel free to adjust the recipe as you please.

Also, Kachumber salads are served in many different ways. You can adjust the size of the cut vegetables to your liking. Photographed is my preference.
