Tomatillo Salsa

I love salsa and can have it along with anything and at anytime..When we go to any mexican restaurant I enjoy having the salsa more than anything else I order..I wanted to try this tomatillo salsa and they were too good though a bit different in taste considering the normal tomato salsa..Here goes the recipe..



Tomatillos (medium sized) - 5
Onion (medium sized) - 1/2
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup chopped
Vinegar/lime juice - 3 tablespoons
Green chillies/Jalapenos - 2
Sugar - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste


Line a baking tray with foil and place the tomatillos.Drizzle some oil over them and allow it to broil for about 10 minutes until the skin starts turning black..This step can also be done in stovetop..Heat oil in a pan and add the tomatillos..Keep tossing them for about 3 to 4 minutes until the skin turns black..Chop the onions and chillies roughly..Combine all the ingredients in the blender to get a coarse paste.If you prefer the salsa to be smooth puree it well.Serve with tortilla chips,burritos,tacos or any food of your choice..
