Kara chutney / Bell pepper chutney

Colourful spicy chutney goes well with Idli / Dosa. Easy to prepare, more apt for dinner.


1. Big brown onion - 1/2 roughly chopped
2. Tomato - 1 roughly chopped
3. Cilantro - 1/2 handful
4. Garlic pod - 1
5. Ginger - small piece equal to the garlic pod
6. Red chili - 2 nos
7. Bell pepper - 1 roughly chopped
8. Curry leaves - 4 nos
9. Salt to taste
10. Cooking oil - 2 tbs


1. Heat a pan and add all the ingredients except salt. Saute the mixture for 2 mins without adding oil. Then add 2 tbs of cooking oil and saute the mixture till the tomatos gets smashed. Add salt and remove from fire.
2. Cool down the sauted mixture for 10 mins. Put this in a blender / mixie and grind well. If u like season the recipe with mustard seeds else serve with hot idli / dosa.

Other: The bell pepper adds a nice aroma to the dish and offcourse very colourful.
