Pear And Bell pepper Chutney


Hello and welcome dear friends to my cozy cooking corner again. At evenings every one of us has cravings and all want to have something new and tastier. Some people like to eat homemade sweet snacks, cakes, pastries, muffins or pancakes and some want to try salty ones. Today I had made paneer pakoras in the evening and I did not have my regular mint chutney ready to go with it. So I decided to make a chutney from pear and bell pepper. It is very healthy, tasty and I am sure you guys will like it. So let’s make our chutney—


  1. Pears -3
  2. Green Bell Pepper -1
  3. Green Chilly- 2
  4. Mint Leaves -A few
  5. Roasted cumin -1/2 tsp
  6. Raw Mango or Lemon Juice -1 or 2 tsp
  7. White and Black Salt -According to taste
  8. Chaat Masala -1/2 tsp
  9. Mustard Oil -1/2 tsp


Step 1

Wash and cut the pears. Roast bell pepper, deskin it. Cut the pears and remove the seeds.

Step 2

Now take a chutney jar. Add the cut pears, roasted bell pepper, green chilies, roasted cumin, salt, mint leaves, raw mango and grind it to a fine paste. If you do not have raw mangoes add some lemon juice. The idea is to make the chutney a little tangy.

Step 3

DSC02681.jpgTake out in a bowl and add the mustard oil. Mix well. You can use any oil in here, it’s not compulsory to add only mustard oil.

Our Pear And Bellpepper Chutney is done. Serve it with toast, french fries, cutlets or even use it as a salty spread on bread for sandwiches. You can use it in any way you like.
