Red Capsicum Chutney .



Red , red give me red .. is my favourite color and many say that red color suits me well . So i always like red and the boldness it depicts is an inspiration for all. Capsicum is another favourite and being from Thanjavur we are pampered by fresh vegetables because of the fertile soil and a special small variety of capsicum  is a treat for us . After coming to Singapore when i made Capsicum Sambhar my friends  indicated that since i am from Thanjavur  i am preparing this combo. So IF  it is unusual to use capsicum in Sambhar means what will they tell for usili made with it .
