Nice side dish, with extra lime, this would also go extremely well as a side sauce/dish for fish! As it is very similar to a Thai dish I like.

Socially Shared, up and useful.

remaniki, great hub, I love biryani and I really love fresh, crunchy vegetables with it. Usually, I have only had tomato, onion and mint together but your combination sounds much more flavourful. I will certainly try it.
