Koshimbir - Veggie Salad

koshimbir or yogurt veggie salad
Maharashtrian salad with cucumbers, tomatoes and curd.  An easy, quick and tasty side dish.

Cucumber/Kaakdi Slices - 1 cup
Tomato Slices - 1/2 cup
Red Onion Slices - 1/4 cup
Curd/Yogurt/Dahi - 1/2 cup
Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs
Mint/Pudina Leaves - 5 (optional)
Black Pepper/Kali Miri Powder - 1/8 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp

Finely chop cilantro and pudina leaves.  Cut the cucumber, tomato and onion into thin slices.  I used a slicer.  In a mixing bowl, add curd, salt, black pepper powder and mix well.  Now add veggie slices, chopped cilantro, mint and mix well.  You can also add peanut (groundnut) powder and/or dalia (roasted split chickpea) powder as well.  Instead of black pepper you can add finely chopped/minced green chillies as well.
