Spring Onion Koshumbri ( Salad )


I hadn't heard of this salad till today. Aayi told me about it, that she had made this a few times and everyone who had it, liked it. Its not a Konkani item, but I guess she tried it from somewhere. I was quite skeptical on making a salad just with onions, but my mom insisted me to try it once. So, I tried it and was happy that I did. With enough lime juice and coconut, the onions don't taste that pungent and the crunchy salad goes as a nice side either with rice and dal, or as a topping on papads.

Ingredients

Spring onions - 1 bunch (approx.8 stalks), chopped.
Green chillies - 2 small, chopped
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Fresh Grated coconut - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Oil

Method
- Take little oil in a small pan and fry the green chillies in it. Keep aside.
- Add the grated coconut, lemon juice, pepper powder and salt to it, mix well with hand. Add this to the chopped spring onions and mix well.
- After the green chillies have cooled, slightly crush them with hand and mix well with the above mixture. The green chillies should be well mixed, so that the spice comes out in the onion mixture.
- Serve as a side with rice and sambar or with papad.

I'd like to rush this entry to Radhi for JFI-Onions. Jihva is the brainchild of Indira of Mahanandi.
