Wanted to try red bell pepper chutney for a long time... it should abe a great combo with idli and dosa. thanks for the recipe.

sra said...

Sagari, came around to suggest you should list your blog in Taste of India but I see Bee's already done that. Bell pepper with peanuts is quite innovative.

Delish! Is there any vegetable or fruit that you wouldn't make a chutney with? I'm beginning to think that any choice is possible. : )

Kribha said...

Looks so delicious. I haven't tried this so far although I have seen it in other blogs too. I think it's just about time to do it. Lovely pictures.
