Tomatoes & Onion Salad
from Asha Kumar - Detroit, Michigan, USA

This is another tasty salad which is prepared using tomatoes and onions.
These salads are easy to make and are delightful to eat.

  • 2 medium-sized ripe tomatoes - diced into small pieces
  • 1 small onion - diced into small pieces
  • 1 tsp salt
  • small piece of grated ginger
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 small green chillies - minced
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 10 -12 cleaned and cut cilantro leaves
    ( this ingredient is used extensively in whatever I cook, because I love it's taste and flavor. I think the only dishes I don't use them are sweets and desserts)
Keep a medium-sized skillet on heat and put vegetable oil.
When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds.
Since they sputter and pop, keep a lid handy.
Then add green chillies and grated ginger and fry for 2 minutes.
Now, add onions to it and fry until they are slightly brownish.
Remove from heat and keep aside.

In a serving bowl, put the diced tomatoes, salt, garam masala and mix well.
Put the fried mixture and blend thoroughly.
Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve chilled.
