Its Grill Time–Red Pepper Chutney / Thokku

Summer is almost over, but still the flowers are blooming. Hence I know I am not in to Fall season. At the start of Summer, we decided that we are finally going to buy a grill. I was double minded. I knew I wanted a grill but did not know if I would use it often to justify it. But I pushed off all thoughts and bought a Webex portable grill. This is easily the best culinary decision I have made in my life. I just love it. It is so simple to use that I am already Pro. First things first, I had always wanted to grill vegetables. Hence these photos. For a long, long time, I wanted to grill red pepper to perfection, just how they show on food network. I finally got a chance to try and its come out beautifully. Ok, enough talk. Let me share my Grill photos and you be the judge.

All Set to go.
