Roasted Bell Pepper and Tomato Garlic Chutney

Roasted Bell Pepper Toamto and Garlic Chili Chutney

Roasted Bell Pepper, Tomato and Garlic chutney is a spicy chutney made with oven roasted Red Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Garlic and Dry Red Chillies.

It is my variation of the famous Roasted Tomato and Garlic chutney that is quite famous in the state of Rajasthan in India and popularly known as Lehsun Ki Chutney. I usually keep a small jar of Lehsun ki Chutney(Rajasthani or Maharashtrian style) or Chinese Schezwan Chutney in my refrigerator as these go well with almost all Indian food items and can be added to fried rice preparations, noodles, dals and curries for enhancing the taste.

I and my daughter love spicy food and we love to have chutney as a side dish, with pakoras(chickpea fritters), idlis, dosa, vada and many more dishes. I make garlic and tomato chutney along with Kashmiri red chillies. This is another version that I love to make, with roasted bell pepper along tomato, chilies and garlic. We enjoyed this with Instant Rava Idli and hot Sambhar.

It is a kind of spicy garlicky version of Roasted Bell Pepper and Tomato soup. Idli tasted equally good with the spicy chutney even without the sambhar.
