Radish and Cucumber Salad with Mint and Coriander

Here’s a simple little salad which is great alongside spicy curries. The cooling qualities of cucumber are just the ticket for that panicked feeling you get sometimes when you’ve been a little heavy handed with the chillies. It also adds a great crunchy texture to accompany rich, creamy sauces. Quite delicious.

INGREDIENTS:
1 small bunch radishes (cut into very fine dice)
1 small cucumber (seeded and cut into very fine dice)
2 tablespoons fresh mint (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons fresh coriander (finely chopped)
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon cumin powder
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:
Combine all the ingredients well. Leave for 30 minutes in the fridge to have all the flavours marry. Serve.

SERVING:
Serve alongside curries or spiced Indian style meat or fish.
