This is usually served as an accompaniment to meals in Yemen in both the northern and southern parts of the country. It’s for those who like a little more spiciness to their food. Some of them take on a reddish color because of extra tomatoes [it’s a ratio thing], but I like mine greener so I add more cilantro than I do tomatoes. With it we usually serve greens such as arugula, lettuce, green onions, radishes, daikon usually washed and whole , but if they are too big then cut roughly into 3 bite sizes. You will need:
1) 1 roma tomato [preferably firm or else it will be watery]
2) 3 tbslp of roughly chopped cilantro [eye ball it]
3) one small green chilly pepper [less if you don’t like it spicy]
4) 1 clove garlic
5) salt to taste
6) 1/4 cup lemon juice
Blend all either in a blender for a smooth texture, or a food processor if you like it chunky. Pour into a bowl and serve as as condiment to your main meal.
