You can relish Mexican salsa recipe | Indian style Mexican salsa | homemade tomato salsa | as a party dip with deep-fried tortilla chips i.e nacho chips or serve it with tacos, burritos, or quesadillas. Listing down some other popular Mexican dip recipes https://www.tarladalal.com/recipes-for-Mexican-Dips-416 that you might love to try :

Roasting the capsicum

  1. To prepare Mexican salsa recipe | Indian style Mexican salsa | fresh homemade tomato salsa | brush ½ tsp oil all over the capsicum. 
  2. Pierce with a fork and hold over an open flame. Roast until the skin blackens from all over. You can even roast the capsicum in an oven by placing them on a greased baking tray. Roast them for 20 minutes at 200’C, rotate and roast them for another 20 minutes. 
  3. Remove from the flame, immerse it in water and allow it to cool. Another way is to place the capsicum in a food-grade plastic bag or place the roasted peppers on a cutting board, then invert a large bowl over the top of them. The bag/bowl traps the steam inside that will help in peeling them easily.
  4. Once cooled, remove the burnt skin on the capsicum with your hands. Deseed it and chop it finely. Keep aside.

Blanching the tomato

  1. To makeMexican salsa recipe | Indian style Mexican salsa | fresh homemade tomato salsa | blanch the fresh tomato, boil enough water in a deep pan. 
  2. Take 6 medium-sized ripe, red tomatoes and rinse them. We have used regular Indian tomatoes but, you can also make use of Italian tomatoes or Roma tomatoes if available
  3. Scoop out and discard the eyes of the tomatoes using the tip of a sharp knife.
  4. Make a criss-cross cut at the base of each tomato. The “X” cuts help in easy removal of skin after blanching.
  5. Put the tomatoes in boiling water for 3 to 4 minutes or until the skin separates from the tomatoes.
  6. Using a slotted spoon remove the tomatoes from hot water.
  7. Immerse them in cold water for some time. Refreshing prevents overcooking of tomatoes due to internal cooking and helps in retaining the bright red color.
  8. When the tomatoes are cooled, peel and discard the skin and seeds. Chop on a chopping board. Keep aside.

From the instructions this is a stove top cooked salsa. Very nice. I prefer the fresh salsa. I simply remove the seeds and pulp of the insides of roma tomates and hand dice them. Add shalots, fresh green chillis, chopped coriander, lime juice salt and ground pepper. Refrigerate in a glass sealed container.
