This dish is full of flavours. It is spicy, sour, refreshing, no Carbs and really healthy. Cut down on the small chilli if you cannot handle the heat well and it would taste just as good. On the contrary, you can of course add more chilli for that extra kick. Just writing about this is triggering my palette!
I enjoy this dish on it’s own or sometimes with rice. You can eat it cold and it would still taste awesome. You can keep the leftovers and have it the next day and that would still be good.
