Capsicum Chutney





Ingredients:-

Red bell pepper/Capsicum- 1 medium

Ghee /oil - 1 tbsp
Tamarind paste - 1/4 tbsp
Salt to taste

For tempering:-

Mustard seeds - 1 tbsp

Curry leaves - 5 count
Whole red chili - 2

Procedure:-

1-First take a pan add ghee and add the chunks of red capsicum and peanuts with out skin and also add little salt and tamarind cover it and cook in simmer.

I fried the peanuts and capsicum separately because i used the peanuts with peel. So i fried them separately and peeled them and added together while grinding the chutney.

2-When the capsicum turns into soft add into a blender and make a fine paste.


3-Now in the same pan add little ghee and add the tempering ingredients and off the flame when the mustard seeds starts crackling.

4-Add this tempering to the chutney mix well and serve with rice, dosa or idli tastes good.
