Is it necessary to fry the vegetables?
Depending on whether the tomatoes are heat-treated, the distinction can be made between “salsa fresca” (raw salsa made from fresh tomatoes) and “salsa roja” – a classic recipe for salsa in which the tomatoes are cooked in some way. You can approach the preparation of the salsa in several ways: pre-boil the ingredients, fry or bake. Thus, it is up to you to decide which method is right for you!
Spicy, colorful Mexican salsa is one of the most popular sauces in the world. The classic salsa is different in that it is prepared with a tomato base.
Prepare all the ingredients. Peel the carrots. Cut into small pieces.
Peel and finely chop the onion.
Finely chop the tomatoes, as well.
Juice the lemon.
In heated vegetable oil, sauté the onions for 2 minutes, then add carrots, salt, pepper and pressed garlic and sauté until soft.
Add tomatoes and spices, stir and fry until soft, about 5-7 minutes.
