I am one of the rare northern Cali girls who hearts LA. My family hails from India via Kenya and being a good little south asian i spent many of my young years in the kitchen. Surrounded by good food from birth (thanks mom!) i have always loved cooking, eating and learning about food. In recent years i have developed an interest in the history of food and its cultural connection particularly in how imperialism and colonization has had an influence on cuisines of the world. This blog is my way of exploring the amazing web of nourishment that sustains us.

Onions, cucumbers, and tomatoes all come in varying sizes. Can you amend the recipe to include approximate amounts? Equal parts or 1/2 cup each? Thanks!

@Austin, this is a very adaptable recipe so you can add more or less depending on which vegetables you like. Also if you had cuminm red chili powder, and a light oil it enhances the flavor and helps making the seasoning stick.
