The beauty of home cooked food is just like this vibrant capsicum chutney. You are the boss of your recipe, meaning you can add little this and that of your choice. You can swap some ingredients, raise spice level or reduce unhealthy ingredients or avoid them completely. The possibilities are just endless. You can branch out and try something new which you know in your head will also be delicious. This freedom of cooking sometimes leads to absolutely unique and out of the box recipes. My love for home cooked food goes to the next level when I stumble upon a perfect recipe after certain tweaks and twists. This capsicum chutney justifies that point and makes me happy on so many levels.
You never find such a uniquely tasting veggie based chutney in any restaurants. If you happen to visit certain restaurant over a period of time, you get to taste same coconut chutney or garlic chutney. And never any veggie based dips (remember sweet pumpkin chutney!!). If you wish for certain fancy chutneys to relish with idli and dosa, then you should surely look for a home made food.
I guess in my long list of chutneys, I have used up most veggies. And today this green beauty capsicum has taken turn to be whipped up as chutney. The recipe remains more or less similar to other veggie based chutney. But capsicum has infused it’s flavor to the dip such that it tastes amazingly unique.
Capsicum chutney can accompany any breakfast like dosa or Idli and even rice. The bowl of chutney was licked clean like never before at my home and I assured myself to buy this wonderful veggie at least for the sake of chutney.
I can see you heading towards kitchen with a capsicum in your hand..
