This is a recipe that has its beginnings in Pune, India......but fell into a San Diego, Ca. kitchen! Himanshu is a vegetarian who hates vegetables! Boy, do I have to create to please him!

I just came across this recipe while looking for something saladish to go with my "tandoori chicken" (quotes because mine is very inauthentic). My out of the fridge modifications included using a black pepper/lime chutney and what ever veggies I had in the crisper. It was excellent and I will make it often. Thanks
