Takkali Salad Kerala Style

Takkali Salad is a salad made with tomatoes , onions and green chillies . The Kerala style salad is topped with coconut oil ,

Takkali is tomato in Malayalam , and this is one word I learnt while we took a trip to the back waters in Kerala . The Takkali salad is nothing but a very simple salad , infact so simple that I was hesitant to post . The salad is a mix of tomatoes , onions , which are our basic salad ingredients , but the pounded green chilly , the torn curry leaves and a final drizzle of coconut oil take the salad to a different level . The salad can be served with any meal , though nothing like serving it with some rice , curry and thoran .

Takkali Salad is my Day 3 post under the theme Summer Salads where I posted Koshimbir , Udupi style and Anarkali Salad.

  1. Sometimes we consider certain things to be so simple to post, but they turn out to be a crowd pleaser. There is a flavorful twist in this otherwise simple onion tomato salad

  2. simple dishes are always ignored. dont underestimate their power. Well adding coconut oil definitely makes it a new version of mixing onion n tomato. But yes this simple salad is always in demand,
