Capsicum Chutney – Green Bell Pepper Chutney

June 6, 2016 Chutney Recipes  5 comments

Chutney varieties are always welcome at home, though Chotu’s favourite is Tomato Chutney. This Capsicum Chutney is a very flavourful and delicious chutney. This is the first time I am trying this. Honestly when my mom told me this recipe, I was quite skeptical about how would it taste when I grind capsicum?!? But when I tasted it, gosh!! This has become my favorite now. The bursting flavours of capsicum and green chillies is a magical combo about this Capsicum Chutney!!

So if u doubt the taste of this Capsicum Chutney just like I did, trust me it is truly out of the world!!

Now to the recipe..

Tips:

  1. I would suggest using green capsicum only for making this Capsicum Chutney. Will post a different combo with red capsicum soon.
  2. Adjust green chillies according to your preference. It was a bit spicy with 5 green chillies, but we really loved it.
  3. U can add the tempering to the Capsicum Chutney as is. Adding the chutney to the tempering and saute again is optional.
