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.

Can we blend it once it cools down or should we add the tomato puree? I liked the taste but did not like the consistency.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Khushboo, As this is uncooked salsa we have not cooked it or blended it, if you wish you can blend it
