Koshimbir with Yogurt (Maharashtrian curd salad)

Hi everyone ! Today’s recipe is my childhood favourite ‘Koshimbir with Yogurt’. This curd salad was first introduced to me by my aunty (my mother’s friend), she is from Maharashtra and cooks delicious authentic Maharashtrian food. You can have koshimbir with any of your three meals. I love to eat it with parathas and sometime like a small meal. It is a less than 10 mins recipe. Try this at home and let me know in the comment section below what do you think of koshimbir.
