Middle Eastern Onion And Tomato Relish

This relish is eaten on the side almost like a chutney accompanying the main dish. It has a slight kick of spice to it, giving a dish that extra heat, as most middle eastern food isn't spicy at all. It is similar to the Indian kachumbar, without the cucumber, another difference is, its blitzed to a finer paste in the blender.

Middle Eastern Onion and Tomato Relish

1/2 a small onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 large tomatoes
fresh coriander leaves
1 green chilli (deseeded)
salt to taste

Blend all the above ingredients together in a small blender or mixer till you get a fine (yet slightly coarse) paste. Serve fresh alongside any dish. Goes well with a meat and rice dish or even with kebabs.
