Preparation Time:

10 min

Cooking Time:

15 mins


Red Bell Peppers - 3
 Walnut halves coarsely chopped - 100g
 Dried Chilli flakes - ½ tsp
 Sun dried Tomato paste - 1 tbsp
 Garlic Cloves chopped - 2
 Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
 Balsamic Vinegar - 1 tbsp
 Sugar - 2 tsp
 Cumin Powder - 1 tsp

• Cook the Peppers in a pre heated Oven to 220 degree centigrade for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the skin has puffed up and blackened all over.

• Transfer this to a bowl, cover with a towel and leave until it is cool enough to handle.

• Remove the skin and seeds from the Peppers and tear the flesh into pieces.

• Then put this in a food processor and add the remaining ingredients. Grind it into a coarse paste.

• Season with Salt and Pepper and transfer it into a bowl.

• Cover this with clingfilm and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. This will develop good flavour.

• Bring this to room temperature before serving. Drizzle with some Olive Oil and sprinkle some chopped Pistachio.
