Home-made Salsa is always a wonderful idea, goes well with chips or nachos and is especially great because there are no added preservatives unlike the store-bought versions. Added bonus is that it is super easy to prepare.

Ingredients
5
fresh tomatoes, peeled then chopped
1 tsp
tomato paste/puree
1 tbsp
tomato sauce/ketchup
1/2 tsp
sugar
2
green chillies, chopped
1
small onion, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
cumin powder
big bunch of fresh coriander, chopped
1/2 tsp
garlic paste
Instructions 

Put everything into your food processor. Pulse a few times, and check the consistency of your salsa. If you like it chunky, stop when it looks ok for your taste. I don't like huge chunks in my salsa dip, so I pulse until it's not completely smooth but doesn't have big visible chunks in it. Taste and adjust salt/chilli.

You can even add a bit of chilli powder if you want it extra spicy. The salsa tastes better after it's refrigerated for a few hours. I prefer to make mine the day before I will use it. That way, the flavour develop perfectly. You can make it at least an hour before using too.

Hi, you can get it ready made at supermarkets or grocery shops. It is concentrated tomato paste that comes either in a can or jar or tube.

how to male tomato paste ?

Can I simply blend the tomatos and use it as tomato paste? Or can I avoid it?

Not the same thing, tomato paste is concentrated, some places it is known as puree. You can leave it out, the colour will not be as vivid though.

Sister how to peel tomatoes?

Make a small cross on the bottom of the tomato, then boil a pan of water and when it is boiling, drop in the tomatoes and simmer for about 1 or 2 minutes. Remove and plunge the tomatoes into icy water to stop the cooking process, then use the cross on the bottom to easily peel the tomatoes.
