Tomatillo Salsa with Crema

Tomatillos are green tomato looking vegetable which has thin paper like green husk.It needs to be removed before Tomatillo can be used.It looks like green tomato but it is actually a berry.It is very tart in flavor.Many times the green sauce made out it is  referred as Salsa Verde(Green(Verde in Spanish) Sauce(Salsa in Spanish)).



I have made this salsa several times and did different things to cut through slight bitterness and tartness, tomatillo has.I balanced the tartness by adding Mexican Crema to it and it scored big time unexpectedly in the family.So here it is

Tomatillo Salsa with Crema


  1. 6-7 small Tomatillos
  2. 1/2 onion quartered
  3. 2-3 cloves of garlic
  4. 1 tablespoon lime juice
  5. 1 Teaspoon roasted ground cumin
  6. Pinch of ground chili flakes/Jalapeno
  7. Mexican Crema to adjust tartness
  8. Salt to taste


  1. Remove the husk from tomatillo wash it.
  2. Arrange tomatillos,garlic,onion in broil safe pan.
  3. Drizzle it with oil and broil it until top is slightly charred.
  4. Put it in blender and puree.
  5. Add cumin,chili and salt.
  6. Taste it.If you like the taste,stop it here.
  7. If you find it tart and slightly bitter,start adding sour cream in small addition,may be 1/2 tablespoon at time and taste it as you go along.

You can use sour cream instead of crema.
