BM #90 Week 4 Day 1 - 

This week I shall post some bookmarked recipes or recipes close to my heart. I have been making this Tomatillo-bell pepper chutney for over a decade or more. We love the tart tomatillos in dal, salsa and chutneys.

This post was in my drafts for more than 3 years and when I saw the tomatillos in the market, I was reminded of this post and so here I am with the recipe...

Ingredients - 

Tomatillos, chopped 3 cups
Colored Bell Peppers, chopped 2 cups
Green Chillies 7-8 (or to taste)
Salt, Sugar to taste
Sesame Seeds 2 tsp
Almonds/Peanuts handful
Coconut Powder 2 tsp
Garlic and Cilantro (Optional)
Seasoning (Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Fenugreek seeds a pinch, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Hing 2 pinches, Curry leaves few)

Method Of Preparation -

In a skillet on a medium-high flame, Pour oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the mustard seeds splutter and the rest of the dals are golden brown, add the chopped tomatillos, colored bell peppers and chopped green chillies and saute them. 

After stirring for about 3-4 min, add salt, roasted sesame seeds, coconut powder, almonds / roasted peanuts and sugar, mix well and let the vegetables get mushy.

Remove from fire and add the chopped garlic and mix well. Let the mixture cool down and then grind it to a coarse paste adding cilantro as needed.

Enjoy it with steaming rice and ghee. Some like it with Idli or Dosa.

Preparation Time 20 minutes
Serves 8-10
