“This is the most delicious yogurt salad to serve with biryani, particularly chicken biryani. My mom's friend tried this recipe from a magazine from Kerala, India called Vanitha and sometimes I just make this to eat by itself!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups granny smith apples, peeled and diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cucumber, skinned,seeded and diced
  • 14 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers, chopped (I leave half of the seeds in)
  • 4 -5 cups plain yogurt, slightly whipped with a whisk to make it smooth (you can also adjust it according to your preference)


  1. Season yogurt with salt, mixing well.
  2. Add apples, onions, cucumber, cilantro and jalapeno.
