Red Bell Pepper Chutney !




Red bell pepper chutney is my new favourite and I make this often these days as its available abundantly here in London. Back in Bangalore only green was available more and i used to search for this red. So i enjoy making this often as a chutney or as a dip and it goes well with everything..  idlis, dosas, rotis. 
It is a blend of all flavours, the sweetish touch from the red bell pepper and the tanginess from tomatoes and tamarind with the spice from chillis combines to an awesome and finger licking chutney. But make sure the chillis and tamarind doesn't overpower the taste of red pepper.
