Pepper/Capsicum chutney

Posted on Updated on

How long it takes: 30 mins

Number of servings: 4-5

I am adding this to the long list of wet chutney on this log and that too after a long gap. I have already put up a few dishes with capsicum style peppers like the Aloo Capsicum masala, Capsicum sukhe, Carrot-Capsicum salad, Capsicum roti, Capsicum Cashew curry, Babycorn capsicum masala and these have been popular to varying degrees – in fact Aloo Capsicum Masala is among the most popular posts on the blog. I have used yellow pepper in this post but you can use any of the others – red, orange or the classic green. This chutney is a good combo for Idli, Dosa, Roti and if you were concerned about this yet another coconut dish, well, no. No coconuts here !

What you need to have:

1.Chopped capsicum – 1 and 1/2 cup

2. Chopped onion – 1/2 cup

3. Kashmiri chili – 5-6

4. Roasted peanuts – 1/2 cup

5. Garlic clove-1

6.Tamarind – goosbery size

7. Jaggery – 1/2 tablespoon

8. Chopped cilantro – 2 tablespoons

9. Ginger – 1″ piece

10. Salt – as per taste

11. Cooking oil – 2 teaspoons
