Bell Pepper Chutney and Awards


Chutney

Bell Pepper Chutney


As everyone says, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day..... being a working woman.. I usually dont have enough time to make something special in the morning every day. So mostly we have either Idly or Dosa every alternate week. For these I can prepare the batter on sunday, so that it lasts for me for the whole week.

The other problem that arises is the chutney.... eating peanut or coconut chutney everyday is not that very healthy option. So when I was searching for alternatives on my favourite blogs, I came across this bell pepper chutney in Indira's Mahanandi blog.

It is very healthy, tasty and easy to prepare....

Ingredients:

Red Bell Peppers : 2, chopped
Onion : 1, chopped
Peanuts : 1/2 cup
Dry Red Chillies : 10, adjust accord. to your taste buds
Garlic : 2 cloves
Tamarind paste : 1 tbsp
Salt : to taste
Oil : 1 tbsp

Ingredients

Ingredients


How I did it:
  1. Heat oil in a kadai and add red chillies, bell peppers, garlic and onion and roast till done.
  2. Dry roast peanuts in a seperate pan. (I used already roasted tinned peanuts).
  3. Once the roasted veggies cool, grind all the ingredients to a coarse paste without adding any water.
  4. Serve with any breakfast like, idly or dosa.. even tastes good with hot rice.

Served with Idly


And the Verdict:

J liked it very much, it was different from the regular chutneys we have. It has a mild sweet taste from the red peppers and was very yummy.
I served it with Idlies and it was a huge hit.
