Green Bell Pepper Chutney / Capsicum Chutney

Capsicum Chutney
Today is the last day in Blogging marathon..Srivalli made a exiting theme for today, she paired up two bloggers who had participated in this marathon.Each one should cook a dish from the other blogger recipes..I have been paired with Usha from MySpicyKitchen.. I searched her blog and found this amazing chutney recipe.. So I decided to make that..She used red bell pepper and tomatoes in her dish,I couldn’t find that colour capsicum over here,so I used green capsicum..And I also planned to keep this chutney green so I replaced the tomatoes with tamarind. I also used some coriander leaves to brighten up the chutney..I love a little sweet taste coming from this chutney,so I added a tiny bit of sugar..At last this dish came out perfect..I enjoyed this with Dosa..This weeks marathon ends by today..From tomorrow onwards I am in another exiting theme..So keep checking it out..
