Description

The kachumber salad is basically a cucumber, onion, tomato, and Indian spices and herbs tossed together. It goes well with almost any Indian dish. With this Kachumber Salad, we used finely chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions. Kachumber is a Hindi word that often refers to simple vegetable mixtures.

Notes

  • The paneer tikka can also be cooked on the barbecue grill.
  • It is best to cut the tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions evenly, to make a perfect Kachumber Salad.
  • I prefer using store-bought paneer in this particular recipe as homemade paneer is usually too fragile and may break while grilling.
  • The salad can be further spiced up by adding in some chaat masala powder and red chili powder.
  • For children, you should not add green chilies.
  • Peel and remove the pomegranate kernels and store them in the refrigerator, so that they are ready whenever you want the kachumber. Just add it after you have mixed everything.
  • By adding oil to the paneer and veggie mixture while grilling or baking, moisture can be kept in control. In addition, paneer and vegetables are brushed with a light coating of oil to prevent them from becoming dry.
