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.
The spread tasted delicious the nuts gave a nice taste to the spread. We enjoyed the spread in a sandwich and also in my dosa today.
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.
