Wash the bell peppers well and grease them with oil a little and roast them directly on the gas flame till they are charred on all sides. Do keep turning often so that they are not completely burned and cooked evenly
Once down, wash and removed the black charred bits and let it cool. Deseed and chop into small bits.
In a large bowl, whisk curd well and the chopped bell peppers along with salt.
In a small pan, heat olive oil. Once hot add the mustard and jeera seeds and saute till they turn brown and start to crackle. Add the dry chillies and sautee for another minute.
