Green Chilli Capsicum/Bell Pepper Pickle

This is a very flavorful and spicy pickle. Green chilli and capsicum makes a great combination. The green color in both chilli and capsicum gives a great pleasant color. It tastes really very good and was very spicy. It  makes great combo with curd rice. Also you can have this with hot idli and dosa even.

Also it can be stored for about a week even. Just put in a dry air tight container and use dry spoon to take this pickle. It will last long for about weeks even. Really hot, spicy and mouthwatering pickle.

Green chilli - 6 to 8
Tamarind juice - 3 tbsp (thick juice)


1) Heat a pan and add few drops of oil. Add the green chillies and cut capsicum.

2) Saute it for few minutes, until you get rid of the raw smell and it when it starts to turn light brown in color. Remove from flame and let it cool.
