Onion Tomato spicy salad

Salad is the one that helps to fulfil your daily quota of fresh vegetables, by that way your daily quota of vitamins and minerals too. Salad should always be accompanying a meal, not by meal itself. since it does not qualify to fulfil the quota of macro nutrients say carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and without them micro nutrients aka vitamins and minerals cant do their job properly. So have your salad but along with your roti/dal/rice/ curds.
