Easy to prepare, Onion Tomato Koshimbir just involves chopping the veggies and tempering them with traditional ingredients. Raw and juicy, it is quite refreshing, and considered an essential accompaniment for a Maharashtrian meal. Remember that the asafoetida and sugar, though used very mildly, play very important roles in improving the aroma and flavour of this dish, so forget them not! Add a dash of lemon juice as well, to enhance the flavour of the koshimbir further.
