Chopped Cucumber, Tomato and Onion with Lime Juice

1 large English cucumber, ends trimmed off, peeled, cut in half lengthwise, seeds scooped out, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 medium-size tomato, cored and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems
1-2 fresh green Thai, cayenne, or serrano chiles, to taste, stems removed, finely chopped (do not remove the seeds)
juice of 1 medium-size lime
1 tsp Chaat masala

Combine all the ingredients in a medium-size bowl, and toss together thoroughly.

Serve at room temperature or chilled. It will keep, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Longer that that, the juice will develop a fermented flavor.

Excellent served alongside curries or atop grilled fish.
