Maharashtrian Koshimbir

Maharashtrian Koshimbir is part of the Maharashtrian Thali or Lunch Menu, regularly served at home and at weddings as well. This is a fine blend of fresh vegetables, fruits with a Yogurt Dressing.

Koshimbir / Kachumbar / Raita is traditionally made with fresh vegetables and fruits, has crushed roasted peanuts and tempered with mustard, cumin and curry leaves. It is dressed in thick curds/yogurt and makes an excellent filling dish by itself.

While personally I am not a salad person, I make it for the family and Daddy is a huge fan of these. Regular salads always feature on our table, while different raithas are served along with Biryanis. Today’s version of salad is adapted from Pradnya who has used vegetables and fruits. As I have said, I got my Maharashtrian Thali run through her as well. She suggested what else I could do. This Thali again turned out to be so good and satisfying.

In addition to being a simple dish to make, this one is great on the tummy as its so cooling and filling too. Koshimbir is part of the Maharashtrian Thali that I made for BM#86 week 4 on Indian Thalis

  1. I didn’t know yogurt is used in koshimbir. This is good to know. I love such simple salads though am lazy to make it just for myself.

  2. I love these salads , and it has been a while since I made a koshimbir . These get such a unique flavour from the curd , truly it’s amazing . Ok , I am making some today itself for lunch .

  3. This is a nice variation to regular raita. I think this dish is enough as a light meal or as a snack — it has so many veggies and protein from yogurt. Lazy people like me will make it a meal with some roti on the side 😉

  4. Hi Lovely Maharastrian Thali… The koshimbir is nice and different from the ones we make traditionally.. never tried cabbage and apple in curd together…
    Best wishes
