Red capsicum peanut chutney | Red Bell pepper peanut chutney

red capsicum chutney

I make capsicum chutney (bell pepper chutney) rarely at home because my daughter and my husband are not a big fan of it. So I rarely buy and make capsicum recipes at home. Recently I bought few red capsicum at an offer price and tried a side dish for idli dosa. As I have already shared a green capsicum chutney with roasted dals, I prepared this red capsicum chutney with peanuts.

It came out so well and we all relished it with hot idli and dosa. Raksha and Sendhil couldn’t make out this capsicum chutney as the taste of peanut, onion and tomato was dominant. Friends, do try this peanut red capsicum chutney. I am sure even capsicum haters would love this chutney. For variations, you can use green capsicum or yellow capsicum. But the color of chutney slightly varies as per the color of capsicums you use.

Ok, lets see how to make red capsicum peanut chutney/ red bell pepper chutney with step by step pictures.

Kalavai Chutney Recipe –Tamilnadu Hotel Style Kara Chutney

Kalavai chutney recipe

I had bookmarked this Kalavai chutney from Mullai’s blog long back. Being a chutney lover, I was so tempted to try this recipe by seeing the rave reviews in her Instagram page.

Actually I was thinking Kalavai chutney and Kadamba chutney are one and the same. I have already shared a kadamba chutney recipe in my blog. But there are slight differences in the ingredients and method of both the chutney.

After tasting this chutney, I reminded about a kara chutney recipe in a hotel in Thiruvannamalai, Tamilnadu. My MIL and myself loved that chutney a lot. We started to smell and lick the chutney to know the ingredients that went inside. But we couldn't spot on. Now I am so happy that I could recreate the same taste after so many years. Many thanks to Mullai for this wonderful chutney recipe. I have shared more than 70 chutney recipes in my blog. I would say this is one of the best chutney recipes. You must give a try !

Ok friends, lets see how to make this yummy Kalavai chutney recipe for idli dosa with step by step pictures and the video.
