Capsicum chutney

capsicum chutney Climate in Singapore is so hot and keeps on changing everyday. As a result , both me and my son are affected by this and so blogging had to take a back seat and other things kept me busy. So this is the reason for the silence.I hope everything comes back to normal soon.
Meanwhile I made this chutney with capsicum the other day and it tasted great. I had seen some similar chutney recipes in different blogs using red and yellow coloured peppers and was quite tempting. As I had green peppers in hand, I used them. It goes well with chapatis. This is really something different than the usual curries made with capsicum.
I am sending this for the AFAM - Bell pepper event being hosted by priya, an event started by Maheshwari.
And yes one more thing, I had updated my craft blog last week and forgot to mention it here. Do have a look in case you interested in looking at a cute picture made with glitter colours.

Ingredients-

Capsicum- 2 chopped
Onion- 1 chopped
Garlic- 2 to 3 cloves chopped
Green chillies- 2 chopped (add more if you can take the heat.)
Salt- to taste
Peanuts- 1/2cup
Oil- 2tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp
Asafoetida- 1/2tsp

Method-
Roast the peanuts and de skin them.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds and asafoetida. Then add the garlic and green chillies along with onions and fry till the onion turn translucent. Then add the chopped capsicum and salt and saute till they turn tender.
Now blend this in cooked mixture in a blender along with peanuts.
Serve with rotis.
