I already written about a Roasted Red Bell Pepper Chutney with Sesame on the blog. In this version of this chutney, I have used peanuts and it turned out simply delicious and more nutty.

One of the many pleasures of blogging is meeting foodies and one such person is Sushmita Buddhisagar from whom I first learnt about the Roasted Red Capsicum Chutney and whose version uses sesame.

This weekend I decided to try this chutney with roasted peanuts as I had loads of them at home and the result was simply a delicious nutty pachadi with an underlying sweetish flavour provided by the roasted bell pepper.

  3. Let the bell peppers cool.
  4. Using a knife scrape and a gentle hand, scrape off the char.
  5. Wash off the remaining charring under a gentle flow of water.
  6. Set aside.

  9. Add the red bell pepper, peanuts, roasted red chillies, garlic cloves, and salt to a grinder.
  10. Grind to a coarse paste. You don’t need any water as red bell pepper has a high water content; if needed, add a teaspoon of water at a time.
  11. Serve the Roasted Red Bell Pepper Chutney with Idli, Dosa, or rice topped with sesame oil.
