And coming to my today's chutney, I gave an unique twist by including green capsicum / bell pepper along with gongura leaves. And both the ingredients complimented each other to give a delicious tangy, spicy and tasty chutney. This chutney pairs perfectly with hot plain rice but also can be served with Idly or Dosa.
