Dish-A-Day: 06/12/2012 - Red Capsicum Chutney / Red Bell Pepper Chutney

Prologue: Go here.

06/12/2012 - Red Capsicum Chutney / Red Bell Pepper Chutney: If I am not wrong this recipe was given by my cousin-sister a while ago. Finally I tried it and it turned out yummy. Although the salt was less after the preparation was completed. Not sure how it would have turned out if I added more salt, but I left it as is and consumed it all. :)
