Radish and Lemon Salad

This radish salad is full of zing and zesty flavours that will really compliment your Indian dinner menu. And, as it's low on calories, you can have guilt-free seconds.

Hari says

Every Indian meal needs a fesh accompaniment to complete the it. Whether that be a delicate kachumber, a punchy onion pickle or a crunchy salad. This radish salad is just perfect with a curry or as a side to a healthy fish dish.

The radishes make it fresh and crisp and its beautiuful colours make it tasty to look at as well as adding a zing to your tastebuds. This little kick of chilli and its peppery undertones work really well with the earthy cumin seeds - this recipes works really well with a white mooli as well.

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 10-12 radishes
  • 1 handful coriander leaves
  • ½ green chilli
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2cm piece ginger, grated
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • splash of olive oil (optional)


  1. Finely slice the radishes and place them into a bowl
  2. Chop the coriander leaves and chilli and add to the bowl
  3. Toast the cumin seeds in a dry pan until you can smell their aroma then crush the seeds in a pestle and mortar. Sprinkle into the same bowl with the radish.
  4. Grate in the ginger, and squeeze in the lemon juice (and oil if using).
  5. Sprinkle in a little salt and mix everything together.

    Hello Hari,

    I made this last night to eat with the spicy mackerel dish. Easy to assemble and and a welcome twist on salads. I added some seedless, finely chopped cucumber. The whole dish looked colourful and tasted great.
