Capsicum Chutney



Yum



Normally chutney is a dip used as a side dish by many people, we would have heard of many different chutneys but this one is a very rare of it kind.
One fine day i got too innovative and very much wanted to make something different for the dinner so i tried to make some kuzhi paniyaram and capsicum chutney... lol
But to my surprise it turned out a great dip which everyone loved... i was so happy that it was healthy too...

Lets start dipping...
