Coleslaw Kachumber

Kachumber is an Indian salad made of tiny bits of chopped veggies. Usually tomato, cucumber and onion, are minced together and seasoned with salt and lime juice; this is a basic Indian Kachumber made in most Indian families.

Cabbage Kachumber is my mom's signature salad and my favorite. In her food processor, grating veggies was so quick and easy, that my mom could put this together in just few minutes. She used to make this salad everyday... that's how much I love it!! How I miss those days! But now, I have started making my favorite Kachumber which just takes five minutes to make.

Here are my favorite kachumber veggies. 
There is no fixed proportion.
You could also add beetroot.

My Cuisinart food processor that I have been using since past 8 years. Love, Love, Love it!! 
The blade storage box did not come with this. I bought it separately from another favorite store,
Sur La Table :)

Shredding/grating blade.

Grate all veggies except tomatoes.

Cabbage, Carrots, Cucumber

Remove in a large bowl. Add finely diced tomato and freshly chopped cilantro. Add salt to taste and juice of one fresh lime. Mix well and serve. Season the salad just before serving to prevent it from sweating, and to maintain it's crisp texture.

Eat it as is 
Wrap in thin roti or flat bread.
