Red Bell Pepper Chutney(Pachadi)

Red bell pepper as many of you have seen in chinese grocery stores is the main ingredient in this recipe. I shall post the pictures of it soon.

Red Bell Pepper (Chopped into small pieces)
Oil for frying
Mustard seeds
Cumin Seeds
Chana Dal
Urad Dal
Red Chillies
Tamarind Juice
(Tamarind soaked in little water for 10 minutes. You can also heat the tamarid + water in microwave for 30 seconds rather than waiting for it to be soft)

Method of preparation:
Take a pan or kadai. Put oil in it. Let it heat for few seconds. Add mustard seeds. let the mustard seeds splutter. Add cumin seeds, Red chillies, Urad dal, Chana dal to it. let it be for few seconds so that the dal's are fried a little bit. Now add Red Bell Pepper to it. Add turmeric and salt and let it cook with closed cover on it for few minutes or until the red pepper is soft.

Let the above mixture cool. Grid the above with the Tamarind juice and the Red Bell Pepper chutney is ready.

Note: Red Bell Pepper tastes sour in order to remove that sour we need to add enough red chillies and tamarind juice, so that the taste compensates a little bit.

Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
