Kuchumma is the the simplest salad that goes with a number of Indian dishes and meal menus. According to Ayurveda, raw vegetables are best had during lunch, when the digestive agni is at its peak. The ginger-lemon juice salad, of course is an enhancer of digestive agni, therefore can be had with dinner too. Onion-lemon juice salad is great for the Indian summer. It protects one from the heat. The kuchumma salad is great for Kapha body types.
