Capsicum Chutney/Thuvaiyal

I just tried this chutney recipe that I got from my mom. It turned out yummy. It is pretty simple and straight forward.

You will needBold:
1 medium to large green capsicum(Bell pepper),chopped roughly
3 spoons urad dal
3-4 red chillies
Cooking oil
salt to taste

For tempering,
Oil - 1 spoon
mustard seeds -1/2 spoon
a few curry leaves

In a skillet, heat oil and add urad dal. After 2 minutes add the red chillies followed by chopped bell peppers and salt. Saute untill bell peppers are almost cooked. Take care not to over-do it.
Let this cool. Grind this into a smooth paste in a blender/food processor.

Now, make the tempering ready. Again,heat oil and add mustard seeds and allow them to pop. Add curry leaves and switch off the stove. This tempering is added to the paste.

I love to have this chutney with dosas. But, it tastes great as a side to any Indian dish.
