The tricolour capsicum dahi chutney was introduced to our family menu by my husband. He usually makes Indian style potatoes and brilliant tomato rasam. This particular day, he made dinner with Blueberry pulao and beautiful tricolour capsicum. One day that he made the combo and it was a super hit. The blueberry Sweet pulao and the the combination big the crunchy capsicum was delicious.
It has made its appearance on the previous version of the blog. Ever since we moved to this website I had not added it back again.. Somehow it became a regular thing and so got accepted and never came up for much thought to be put on the blog. But this time I did take the pics necessary to I could reshare it with you all. It is not only an easy to do side to an Indian dinner, but so beautiful with the three colours and quite a healthy raw recipe.
Capsicum is not just a beautiful pepper
Capsicum or bell pepper belongs to the chilli family. they come in much more colour than just red yellow and green so have fun with the colours. try to use them with minimal exposure to heat as heat can destroy some of the beneficial effects.
