I was originally going to do Muhammara, syrian red bell pepper and walnut dip. I had all the ingredients, except pomegranate molasses, didnt want to make it without the molasses, that too when i get it here in every grocery, so shelved the muhammara for some other day and made this simple spread with roasted pepper,garlic and nuts.
2 medium red bellpeppers
1 large onion
5 cloves of garlic
2 green chilies
3 nos walnuts
3 nos cashewnuts/almonds
salt to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
- Wash and cut the peppers into chunks. Chop the onion into chunks. Take chopped veggies in a baking sheet, add garlic,green chilies and olive oil. Mix well to coat the oil. Let it sit for 10 minutes
- Bake at 180C for 30 minutes or until the veggies look wilted and little charred on top. Take it off the oven, let it cool for 15 minutes.
- Take the contents into a blender jar, add salt and blend until smooth. Remove it onto a serving bowl and serve along with roti/bread or even idly/dosa. I smeared it on my dosa today morning and enjoyed chutney masala dosa.
