Recipe of the Month: Mumbai Spice for yummy Green Salads

I’ve been eating a LOT of salads lately. The ones we can make during winter just aren’t the same, so I’m filling up on fresh yumminess as much as possible in between April-October.

Rukmini mentioned on her blog a spice recipe I’ve been wanting to try. It took me a while to figure out where I could find a few of the necessary ingredients since I don’t live in India, but a few weeks ago I could finally mix all spices together in a cute little jar and give it a go. Now, I didn’t follow the recipe to a T, because I simply didn’t have enough time, nor the ingredients as seeds. But…

The end result is a really nice bled, I’m loving it on my salads!

Green Salad with Mumbai Spice

Vegetables of your choice for green salad

I used: tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, scallions, bell pepper; and another time also added some stir-fried chicken strips.

For Mumbai Spice, mix together:

3 tbsp of Coriander powder, Cumin powder, Chili powder, Rock Salt
and 2 tbsp of Ground Mango Powder, Plain Salt.

Chop vegetables into a salad bowl, toss with some EVOO and season with Mumbai Spice.

Bon appétit! ;)

  1. Fabulous! ISn’t that great? Love the little label on your jar!

    • Oh, it’s awesome!
      I like that little label too. It’s actually post-it notes that I secured over the original label, which is where the 100% natural (mustard it used to be) part comes from :)

  2. I love Indian in any form, what a great spice recipe!

  3. Sounds delicious! I also really like Indian sauces :)

    • We have Rukmini to thank :)
      I like sauces a lot, too! Just a week ago the Chef and I went with Indian for dinner and it was amazing. There was a sauce I’ll try to make myself one of these days when I have more time for cooking, I’ll post that recipe too if it comes out like the one we tasted at the restaurant.

  4. This looks and sounds so yummy.
