Spicy Korean Cucumber Salad

I know in summer or on hot days you don't eat spicy food but I can eat spicy any day. This is a very famous Korean salad made with cucumber and the kick from the Korean red pepper paste gives a unique taste. You can have it as it is or pair with some BBQ or rice dish. I started eating as it is and then finish it off with my stir fry dish. It will be done in a few minutes and gone in a few seconds.

Ingredients : 

2 English cucumber cut in to bite size chunks
2 green onions, cut finely
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp Gochujang, Korean red pepper paste
2 tbsp Korean red pepper flakes (optional)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp white sesame seeds

Method : 

Cut the cucumber in bite-size chunks and keep it aside.

Cut green onions and garlic and keep it aside.

Combine Korena red pepper paste, flakes, salt, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds in a bowl.

Add garlic, cucumber, and onion and mix it with your hands or wear gloves and mix it hands.

Enjoy as it is, or with warm white rice, BBQ dishes.

Roasted Red Jalapenos Salsa

I think everyone's favorite snack is chips and salsa while watching tv or just to munch or for a party. You can not go wrong with this. Everyone has their favorite recipe to make one too. Either you can be boiled, roasted, raw, grind whatever you do, the end result will be amazing.

Today I am sharing with you a new way to make salsa. I am making this one from Red Jalapenos. This nothing but the ripe green jalapenos. It's not that as spicy as the green one. You need to roast, grill jalapenos, tomatoes and garlic and then finely chopped or just blend it. That also goes as per your liking, if you like puree kind of salsa, then make a puree, if you are chunky, then just blend one or two times only.

Ingredients : 

3 Red Jalapenos 
2 Tomatoes
2 Garlic Cloves
Salt as per taste
2 tbsp. finely chopped white onion
2 tbsp. finely chopped coriander leaves

Method : 

Roast the jalapenos, tomatoes and garlic. When its charred from all over, take it out from heat and put it in plastic or paper bag.

When it's cooldown, put those 3 ingredients in the blender and blend it as per your liking. 

I like chunky salsa so I just blend it 2-3 times only. 

Take it out, add salt and mix it. 

Put in a serving bowl, add onion and coriander and enjoy with chips or tacos, enchiladas, meats.
