Salad is a must for Lunch and dinner for me. While lemon, salt and pepper are a regular dressing for my cucumber tomato salad, I make it a little interesting over the weekends. One salad that goes well with the Indian fare is grated radish salad ( or lachha , as it is called in Hindi). I gave a little twist to the traditional grated radish salad by adding grated raw mango, instead of lemon.
The radish available these days are not bitter and therefor I use them directly after grating. If you get radish that is bitter, grate it half an hour earlier, sprinkle little salt on it and leave it. After half an hour drain all the water and then use the grated radish.
