Onja: Rainbow Watermelon Salsa

I enjoy a refreshing salsa just like any other person and what’s more refreshing than adding watermelon to one? Not only is this salsa full of colour it is packed with flavour. From the sweetness of the watermelon to the herb flavour of the dhania to the coolness of the cucumber. Not much is needed to dress this salsa as the juices of the melon combined with some salt, black pepper and chat masala work the magic. 

Another great thing, you probably have all in the ingredients in your kitchen well expect the chat masala but we’ll get to that later.
