Capsicum chutney

People around me are getting excited when I tell them I have started blogging.One of my friends had visited me yesterday and he was thrilled after seeing my blog.He immediately said , we are going to cook something yummilicious . Then we forgot the purpose for what he came home and we got into making gobi manchurian . I need not mention that it all flied in seconds that we couldnt even take pictures to post it.

Then another friend of mine came in the morning and as far as I know she has not even see the kitchen before in her life.I asked what she wants for breakfast. She said , we will try making capsicum chutney which her friend invariably used to make for her when they both were sharing a house. I without having a second thought put my hands on it.

This is how my capsicum chutney born. She just loved it.

Here the recipe

Ingrdients :

Capsicum - 3 nos.
Onion - 2 nos.
Green chilly - 1 no.
Channa dhal - 1 tsp.
Oil - 2 tsp.
Tamarind - small pinch ( if you want the chutney to ba tangy)
Salt to taste.


1. Heat a pan and add oil. Once oil is hot add channa dhal and fry for few seconds.
2. Then add green chilly and onion .Fry till onion turns into pink color.
3. Now add diced capsicums and fry until it changes color .At this time nice aroma comes out.
4. Add enough salt and let the mixture to cool for a while and grind it coarsely.

Yummy chutney is ready. If you want to make colorful chutney, you can use red or yellow pepper. This goes well with idli or dosa.
