About the Recipe

This capsicum tomato chutney is a great alternative to the more typical breakfast chutneys. It's an easy way to incorporate vegetables into the breakfast meal, and it also pairs well with rice and rotis.

Capsicum is low in calories and also has many health benefits. It is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and iron. It promotes eye health, boosts immunity, supports skin health, reduces inflammation and swelling, and can also help lower blood sugar.

More about the recipe

  • While cooking the vegetables, the tomatoes will release a liquid that is sufficient for cooking. Do not add water; this will make the chutney runny.
  • Tomatoes and capsicum do not take very long to cook.
  • You can also use red bell pepper. It gives a bright color to the chutney.
  • You can also use yellow capsicum, but the taste will be different.
  • This recipe also goes well with akki roti.
