Roasted Tomato Salsa

      I love homemade salsa, and in every winter/fall my mother used to make this recipe .It tastes great with tortilla chips, you can make a spread or serve with rice and grilled chicken, so here it is the recipe.

What will you need?

·         4  whole tomatoes
·         1 Green chili
·         Salt to taste
·         1/4 cup cilantro leaves
·         1 roughly chopped red onion
·         1/2 teaspoon cumin crushed
·         ½ teaspoon crushed red chili flakes


Preheat the oven to 250, in a baking pan place the tomatoes. Roast them for about 15 to 20 minutes. You can turn out the sides.
Once they are beginning to brown, let it cool. Now Peel off the skin and transfer them into a mixing bowl.
Add chopped onion, green chili, and crushed cumin. I like to mix it with hands but if you want a smooth finish; transfer the mixture in food processor. Blend till it gets smooth. I like the chunky texture though.
Garnish with cilantro.

Do you like home made salsa?

  1. This looks really appetizing, Sehar. And considering that for this recipe you roasted the tomatoes, does make the tomato flavour even more profound. I like my salsa a bit chunky, too. And I like salsa with tortilla chips and also a bit in a sandwich wrap with some avocado as well. Great recipe and especially for these long winter months, when we need Vitamin C a bit more. :)

  2. Thank you so much Farah for you time and appreciation,you always left such informative and detailed comments,and you know it means a world to me;-)Hugs

  3. I love that you roast tomatoes first. I just stir fry them on pan with oil to make salsa. Will sure be trying your recipe soon as winter needs that kind of treats always! :)

  4. coming from you, it means a lot! I adore your cooking skills and blog.You can roast it on roti pakane wala tawa and cover it with a lid .turn up the side.I used this method always and it is even better then baking:-)

  5. It looks so awesome. I bet it tastes even more better.
