Kachumber Salad is a very Indian salad of fresh chopped vegetables with a dash of lemon juice and chilli. Served along with rice, dal and vegetables in a thali meal, it goes equally well with roti and sabzi or with biriyani or can be had just by itself as a light lunch. Pomegranates add an exotic flavour to the salad.
