Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Tomato Chutney

Chutneys are part of our meal or we love them with our snacks. Chutneys make your meal tasty and interesting. Isn't it? Chutneys are normally savour in nature but some of them are sweet too especially the Bengali chutney's.

Today I am sharing a savoury chutney recipe, roasted red bell pepper and tomato chutney. I have used very less oil to prepare this chutney. I have roasted both bell pepper and tomato and because of that chutney gets a smoky flavour too. 



Red bell pepper has lot of nutritional benefits. Tomato and red bell pepper both have sour taste, hence I have used little sugar to balance the tangy taste. Over all the chutney has tangy, spicy and bit sweet and salty in taste which will make your taste buds really happy. 

You can pair this chutney with idli, dosa, paratha or curd rice. So next time when you are picking red bell pepper in your shopping basket don't forget to try out this healthy and tasty roasted red bell pepper and tomato chutney.
