Salat (vegetable salad)

Salat is a traditional accompaniment to tandoori meats such as tandoori murg, husaini kabab or moghlai kabab. After the meat is cooked, it is placed on top of the salat and is usually sprinkled with a little garam masala before serving. This recipe serves 4-6.


  • 2 large onions cut into paper thin slivers
  • 2 large, firm, ripe tomatoes cut into 5mm thick slices
  • 2-4 radishes, trimmed and washed
  • 2 medium sized lemons cut, lengthwise into quarters
  • 3 fresh hot green chillies, slit in half lengthwise and the seeds removed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Spread the slivers of onion evenly over the entire surface of a large serving dish and arrange the tomato slices in a ring around the edge.
  2. Arrange the radishes, lemon wedges and chillies decoratively round the tomatoes, and sprinkle the lemon juice, salt and a liberal grinding of black pepper over the vegetables.
