RECIPE BACKSTORY
FEATURING: Tomatoes, cucumber, onion (or fresh onions or green onions) and cilantro (optional). A lovely Indian relish that adds a nice fresh twist which we like to serve with our favorite Indian meals (chana masala, saagwala daal, etc.) It is also great with onion bhaji. This recipe is just a slight variation on this one from our beloved Indian chef, Madhur Jaffrey: https://www.bakespace.com/recipes/detail/Indian-Tomato%2C-Onion-and-Coriander-Salsa/66797/
