Indian dining tables will always have an onion and tomato salad. We usually pile a little heap of salt on the side of our plate and dip the tomato or onion into it and eat them as separate mouthfuls. Choose the best tomatoes you can for this salad. In the East, tomatoes are as flavourful and as beloved as ripe plums.


  • 8 large, ripe vine tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp cha


  1. Arrange the sliced tomatoes on a large serving dish, then add the sliced red onion. Sprinkle over the chat masala, lemon juice and salt just before serving. Squeeze the lime over the salad, and garnish with the green chilli to serve.
