Masala Salsa for Indian Tacos and Burritos

An addition to my regular weekly menus in recent years has been Indian burritos and tacos. Basically we make cheater tandoori chicken and then wrap Indian-spiced foods in tortillas. And we love it. After a few times serving them, I felt like we needed some sort of tomato salsa to go on the burritos, in addition to raita. And that is how masala salsa was born.

This recipe is simple, quick and easy and adds great flavor to your Indian tacos and burritos. And when I say it’s easy, I mean it. I make this little sauce every time I make the Indian burritos and tacos and it’s no big deal.

Also, I totally made this up. The name, the concoction, all of it. I’m not claiming this is actual, real-live Indian food. These are simply recipes inspired by Indian cuisine that are delicious and fun. Disclaimer over. 😉

Perfect topping on Indian tacos and burritos. Serve warm or cold.
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Slice cherry tomatoes into halves.
  2. Put tomatoes into a small saucepan and add the garam masala, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat as low as it will go while still maintaining a simmer, probably around medium-low. Let tomatoes simmer until some of the fluid cooks off, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Store leftovers in the refrigerator. Can be served fresh and warm or cold from the fridge!
