Onion Tomato Salad

I am so tempted so try this at home that I made it twice in a span of two weeks. Well very easy to make, tasty and yet another side dish ready in few seconds. My grandfather used to make this when I was staying with him while studying my bachelor's. So here goes the recipe:    

Onion - 1/2 chopped finely
Tomatos - 2 chopped finely
Oil - 1-2 table spoons
Salt to taste (I used 1 and 1/2 spoon)
Red chilli powder - 1 table spoon (you can adjust this according to your taste buds)
Jeera powder - 1/2 tea spoon (optional)
Coriander leaves - as many as you like (finely chopped)

Method of preparation
1)  Mix onions and tomatos finely chopped. Add red chilli powder, salt (Jeera powder) to above along with coriander leaves and mix thoroughly either with hand  or spatula.
2) Do tadka in a bowl. Add oil to it. Once oil is heated add mustard seeds and then  urad dal to it. You can add some red chillis to this if needed. Add asafoetida and turn off the heat. Cool it and add it to the onion tomato mixture. Your side dish is ready. This goes well with rice but can have it with roti also if you are like me. Enjoy !!
