Save recipe


  1. 2 tablespoons finely chopped tomatoes
  2. 1 tablespoon finely chopped onions
  3. 2 tablespoons finely chopped cucumber
  4. 2 cups whisked yogurt (chilled)
  5. 1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander leaves
  6. 1/2 teaspoon black salt or to taste
  7. 1/2 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
  8. 1/4 teaspoon chaat masala


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Keep it in the refrigerator till you are ready to serve.
  3. Garnish with coriander leaves and roasted cumin powder.

Recipe Tips:

  • Use fresh yogurt; do not use sour yogurt as it will not taste good.
  • To make roasted cumin powder, roast cumin seeds in a flat pan on medium heat till they turn brown in colour (while stirring constantly). Turn off the heat and take them out in a dish. Cumin seeds get roasted very quickly so be careful not to burn them. Let the roasted cumin seeds cool to room temperature. Grind them in a spice grinder or in a mortar and pestle. Store in an air-tight jar and use as required.
