Chennaites are going through a punishing weather these days. I am drinking gallons of water and juice to beat the heat 🙂 Sometimes I also include fruit salads to this list.
What about a salad which is a bit spicy and crunchy? Would be an amazing combination right? I loved it completely when I prepared it for first time. Give it a try and I am sure you’ll like it.
