How to Make Khamang Kakdi Chi Koshimbir(खमंग काकडीची कोशिंबीर): No Onion-No Garlic Salad Recipe

Hello Foodies,
         This Maharashtrian special khamang Kakdichi Koshimbir is one of my absolute favorite salad. It is crunchy, crisp, and refreshing salad! This yogurt-based, no onion no garlic salad is light, healthy and easy on the stomach. I am born and brought up in a Maharashtrian family, and so my taste in food and cooking style is influenced by Maharashtrian Cuisine. 

I like koshimbir with any dish, but love when it served with any pulao. Because the pulao is spicy and hot and to balance the taste koshimbir is the best side dish. As cucumber has a cooling effect and it makes pulao and koshimbir a superfood combo. So once a week, I prepare this healthy salad or koshimbir in my kitchen. This salad is simple to toss together and are delicious too.

        The grated cucumber is perfect for this recipe, but you can also use finely chopped cucumber in this recipe. Also, you can replace coriander leaves with mint leaves, if you prefer, or use a combination of both herbs. But be sure to dress the salad/koshimbir and add salt and sugar right before serving it to prevent the salt, sugar, and cucumber from watering down. So, this recipe combines six flavourful ingredients to make cucumbers shine on your plate.
