Red Bell Pepper Chutney

Last week , I bought a big bag of red bell peppers from the farmers market. I used the peppers in pasta and salad but still a lot left in the fridge. Usually I make tomato-onion chutney (my daughter's favorite ) for idli. But for a change, I gave a twist to the chutney by adding roasted red bell pepper .


Red Bell Pepper- 2
Red Onion - 1
Tomato - 2
Red Chillies - 7
Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Garlic Cloves - 2


Cut the onions and tomatoes into big pieces. Wash the bell peppers, pat them dry and cut into pieces. Heat oil in a pan and fry the dry red chillies along with bell peppers, onion, tomato and garlic until the veggies become soft. Meanwhile add mustard seeds along with sesame in a tsp of oil and once it splutters add it to the blender at the last spin. Serve with Dosas or Idlis.

I also used the chutney as a spread for the veggie wrap.
