So far, I had completed 10 chutney recipes and yeah, there is still a long way to go. I would love to thank all my readers for the lovely encouragement and support. Click HERE to view my last 10 days chutney series.

And coming to toady's chutney...

Cabbage & Capsicum chutney is a healthy chutney to serve with Idly or Dosa. If you have a fussy eater at home who hates veggies, then try this chutney which has veggies, ground nuts and urad dal. Adjust the quantity of chillies according to taste bud.

Ingredients :

2 Tsp Oil
1/2 Cup Cabbage, finely chopped
1/2 Cup Capsicum, finely chopped
1 Tomato, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Urad dal
1 Tbsp Ground nuts
6 - 7 Dry red chillies
Salt to taste

For Tadka :

1 Tsp Oil
1/2 Tsp Mustard seeds
6 - 7 Ground nuts
Sprig of Curry leaf
A pinch of Hing powder 

Method :

Heat 1 Tsp oil in a pan and add finely chopped cabbage followed by capsicum.

Saute it for a minute and add chopped tomato.

Saute it again for couple of minutes or until the tomato turns soft and remove from the flame. Keep aside.

Add remaining oil to the same pan and add urad dal followed by ground nuts and dry red chillies.

Fry it and remove from the flame.

Cool all the sautéed ingredients together and grind into fine paste by adding the required quantity of salt and water.

Once done, transfer it to a bowl and keep aside.

Heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds.

Once it starts spluttering, add ground nuts followed by curry leaf and hing powder.

Add tadka to the prepared chutney and serve.

Serving Options :

Serve with Idly or Dosa.
