  •  Heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan and roast the jeera, urad dhal, dried red chillies and tamarind together till the urad dhal becomes golden colour and the red chillies becomes crisp. Set aside and allow to cool.
  • Heat two teaspoons of oil in a pan and add the cubed onion, pinch of salt and cook slightly. Then add the garlic and cook for a minute then add the tomato and cook for a two minutes till it becomes slightly soft. 
  • Now add the capsicum and enough salt. Cook for two minutes till the peel starts to get blisters or the bright green colour starts to change.
  • Now add the coriander leaves and cook for fifteen seconds and switch off the gas. Allow to cool.
  • Now add the urad dhal mixture into the blender and powder it. If it is a corse powder also it will grind further with capsicum.
  • Now add the capsicum mixture and grind as a fine puree.
  • Without tempering itself this chutney tastes really yummy.
  • If you wish you could splutter mustard seeds in oil and then add some curry leaves and mix with this chutney.(This step is optional)
