For Day 2 , week 4 of BM #17, here is the ever popular Red Capsicum Chutney which I have revisited as the picture in the original post looks primitive :). 

Red Capsicum Chutney

Ingredients - 

Red bell pepper 1 large (I used a combination of Red, Yellow and Orange Peppers)
Green chillies 3 (as per taste)
Garlic pods 1-2 (Optional)
Coriander leaves (Optional)
Lime/Lemon juice as needed
Salt as per taste
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Urad dal 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Jeera/Cumin 1/2 tsp, Fenugreek seeds a pinch, Red chilli 1-2, Curry leaves few, Asafoetida (Hing) 1-2 pinches)

Note - Lime juice can be substituted with tamarind pulp.
Methi seeds can be used instead of roasted methi powder.

Method Of Preparation -

Wash the peppers, remove the seeds and chop it into 1 inch pieces.

In a skillet, heat oil and fry the seasoning items and add the chopped bell peppers and green chillies and saute them until they are semi tender.

Add salt and garlic pods and coriander leaves and remove from fire.

Upon cooling, make a coarse paste and squeeze in some lime juice.
