Today's recipe for Blogging Marathon #34 under the theme cooking with Capsicum is a simple yet delicious chutney.
This chutney I learned from one of my friend who makes excellent and innovative chutneys with veggies.
She uses sesame seeds also along with the peanut,as I ran out of sesame seeds used peanuts only for this chutney.
Addition of sesame seeds is an added flavor for the chutney.Now off to the recipe...................
