It's Spring !!!!

I went to Sri Lanka during Spring 2003, to visit my in-laws. Hubby's aunt cooked up lunch for us once at her home. She made this terrific tomatoe salad. Though 3 years have passed, I just can't forget the taste of the salad. Bought some totatoes to try making it.

This tomatoe salad is so simple and easy to make yet delicious. It has only 3 main ingredients. I added very finely sliced curry leaves for the aroma. Also to boost up the taste.

Tomato Salad

What do we need:




2 ripe tomatoes
1 onion
1 green chilli
1 sprig curry leaves
1/4 tsp sugar
salt to taste

How do we do it:

Slice all the ingredients very thinly. Season with salt and sugar.

Serve cold.

Look at you, how did you chop those green chillies like that:), i would never be able to get them into uniform rings:(
Good one, count me in for this one.

Kay said...

Looks yummy! Sometimes, The simplest dishes are the most tastiest!!!

I'm perplexed like Karthi. How did you slice th tomatoes and onions and green chillies that thin? A special knife?

Puspha said...

Marge: Give it a try. U'll like it.

Mike: Thanx. Anyway, salad is called salsa in Italian & Spanish.

Shawn: Welcome & thank u very much. Glanced thru ur blog. Very nice. R u a Malaysian? Just guessing from the telur gulung tat u made & the spelling of the telur. hehehe :)

Karthi: Thanx. Yep, u've got it rite. Well, actually, made it on ur request. I got used to cutting like that as I'm always rushing against time. When u cut fast, u'll get very fine slices.

Kay: Thanx. U r very correct. As I've told Karthi, I've got to rush while cutting. Of course with bloody experiences. I just use a normal chef's knife.
