Indian onion salad


A lemony onion salad to accompany any Indian dish. One of my Mum’s specialties! I’ve enjoyed it ever since I was young and it was always made when we had a full Indian thali/meal. I I found these pomodorino tomatoes which are naturally sweet, they balance the strength of the onion and the acidity of the lemon.
I could just eat this salad by itself!


1 medium white onion
8 small pomodorino tomatoes
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin powder
Squeeze of lemon juice
1/4 tsp light olive oil


1. Slice onion into thin crescent shape. Add the salt, chilli powder, ground cumin, olive oil and lemon juice

2. Using your hands massage the seasoning well into the onion and finally halve the tomatoes and combine with the onion salad

3. As the onion sits it will marinade and become soft therefore absorbing the delicious dressing. Serve with an Indian meal of your choice
