Salsa and Click entry

For me Summer is the season of fresh vegetables and fruits. I try to enjoy all these fresh produce as much as possible. During my last visit to farmer's market, I bought tomatoes in a large quantity. The moment I saw those fresh, ripe tomatoes, I decided to make fresh salsa at home.

Before you read on, let me clear one thing. It is not authentic recipe of salsa. But I think for each classic dish, everyone has their own recipe version. I want to share my version with you and hope you like it!!

6-7 ripe tomatoes
1 jalapeno
4-5 green onion
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
4-5 garlic cloves minced
salt as per taste
lemon juice as per taste

Wash the tomatoes and very finely chop half of tomatoes by hand or in food processor. Make smooth puree of rest of the tomatoes. Chop green onion and jalapeno in fine pieces

In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients and put it in a refrigerator at least before one hour of serving.

I like my salsa chunky, so normally I cut half of tomatoes.
You can decide jalapeno quantity as per your liking of hotness.
Normally I make my salsa in one day advance, so all the flavors are well mixed.

Also the above picture is my first entry for the CLICK event STACKS started by Jugalbandi.

Hey Gopi, yes you could use any kind of flour tortilla to make those laddus. I would not recommend corn tortilla or any flavored kind. Even leftover rotis would work.
