  Green capsicum chutney
Capsicum chutney / Bell pepper chutney / Kudamilagai chutney was in my try list for long time. Finally I tried it yesterday for our breakfast.I got this Andhra style green capsicum chutney recipe from Sailu’s blog. She had made this chutney using red bell pepper / red capscium. But I prepared it using green capsicum and slightly modified the recipe to suit our taste.It came out very well & it tastes very similar to my tomato mint chutney.We loved it a lot with idli,dosa.I saw few capsicum chutney recipes with peanuts too.I must try it soon.Ok,lets see how to make this delicious capsicum chutney.
