Tri color Capsicum Thogayal

My H is an fan of kothamali thogayal he likes green chutney and thogayal a lot so for a difference I tried the thogayal with colorful capsicum . They tasted extremely delicious and my H just loved  it. Making use of the colorful capsicum in this made the color of the dish more delightful and appealing . Reason why I used colorful peppers is thats they are not too strong to taste as green one. For 2nd day of BM I made this delicious and yummy tri color capsicum  thogayal  which can be served as a side for idli , dosa's and any tiffin dishes. Lets move to the recipe of  this yummy capsicum  thogayal.Click here for Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#34.
