Vegan Onion & Green Capsicum Chutney/Onion Bellpepper Chutney

If you are a South Indian, you might know very well that our favourite South Indian breakfast aka dosas or idlies calls for varieties of side dishes. Obviously we cant stick always with some usual side dish to serve those breakfast dishes. My family loves different side dishes or chutneys if i serve our own South Indian breakfast dishes. Seriously i always look for a new variety of  chutney to give a try. And i never forget to mix and match the ingredients according to our tastebuds. One of my recent trial to serve along with dosas is my today's onion and green bellpepper chutney. Sauteed green bellpepper and onions spiced with red chillies and few more spices makes this incredible chutney.

This rasam is definitely a fingerlicking dish which is quite a comforting food as well. Rasam, this dish is usually made with a grounded spiced rasam powder which calls for a combination of spices. But this onion rasam is seriously different from the usual rasam. Onion rasam calls for white onions which is quite not a usual one for making rasam. Mostly shallots are used for dishing out this incredible dish, but for a change i tried this dish with white onions.
