Farm ripe tomotoes  4 large sliced
Onion    1 medium size sliced
Lime juice  1 1/2   tablespoon
Extra virgin olive oil  2 table spoon
Fennel seed         1/8 teaspoon
Dried red chilly   1
Groung cumin      1/4  teaspoon 
Cliantro          handfull chopped
Sugar             1/4  teaspoon(optional)  
Salt and 
freshly ground 
black pepper         according to taste 


Arrange the sliced tomato and onion on a serving platter and sprinkle sugar and lime juice. Now place a pan on medium heat. Add oil and let it warm add cumin, fennel and red chilly (just broke it a little bit while giving it to hot oil otherwise it may suddenly crack and splutter and make it an aurally and visually challenging environment.) Heat the oil with all the spices for 20 second ,until fragnant. Remove from oil let it cool. Now discard the red chilly . Drizzel this spicy oil over the tomato and onion slices. Sprinkle chopped coriander and season with salt and pepper. A very tangy and yummy tomato salald is ready to serve .
