Red Bell Pepper /Red Capsicum Chutney ~ Vegan Thursday

Today's recipe is a colorful chutney which I make it often  to accompany idly,dosa and paniyaram.The flavor  and color of red capsicum and onion along with red chillies,tomato makes this chutney delicious and finger licking.Lets move on to the recipe..........................


Red Capsicum/kudamilagai1(chopped 11/2cups)
Shallots/Chinna vengayam(peeled)10
Garlic/poondu2-3 cloves
Tomato(chopped)1 (medium size)
Red chilly/Varamilagai5
Tamarindsmall gooseberry size
Curry leaves1 sprig
Mustard seeds/kadugu1/2tsp
Urad dhal/ullutham paruppu2tsp
Saltto taste


Heat a pan with a tsp of oil and fry the urad dhal and red chillies to a golden color,remove it.Heat a tbs of oil and saute the onion and garlic then follows the chopped capsicum.Saute it till the capsicum becomes tender.At this stage add the chopped tomatoes,salt and tamarind,cook it till the tomato turns mushy.

Let it cool down.Now in a blender jar add the red chilly and urad dhal,grind it to a powder.Then add the cool down down mixture and grind it to a fine paste.Do the tempering with mustard seeds with the remaining oil and add it to the chutney,mix it well.

Red capsicum/bell pepper chutney is ready.


  • Don't use more urad dhal as mentioned and the amount of red chilly given is for bit spicier side.
