1 tbsp Sugar
1 small Lemon

Chop onions, green chillis, tomato in tiny square pieces.
Mix everything together adding the salt,red chilli, sugar, cumin seeds, & lemon juice.
Sueeze the tamarind off the seeds and use a seave to drain all the water through to the salad (throw away the seeds and the thick-pulp and only use the water).

ps: add more chopped green chillies if you like yours hot. Enjoy!

Info: Cumin (Zeera), a major ingrediant in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine was especially favoured by the Romans for its powerful peppery and nutty flavour. Cumin is believed to aid digestion, cure stomach ailments and is a very good source of iron.
