Mixed Salad 4 - North Indian Style With Chat Masala

Mamta Gupta

This is a simple but delicious salad, suitable for buffet meals. Use as many of the main ingredients as you have or any that you have. Adding a chopped fruit like apple, orange, kiwi, pear, halved grapes etc. enhances its taste. I often serve it as an everyday salad, about 1/2 an hour before meal time.
